English: Broken Heart symbol

English: Broken Heart symbol (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Once I felt
My heart open
A physical sensation
Like a bud in bloom
A stillness covered me
I felt I heard a voice
And strange electricity
Filled the room

But this was just a trick
Of light and laughter
And the awful way
That eyes can lie
From here there’s no return
To former innocence
No matter how the heart
May try

    “just a trick of light and laughter, and the awful way that eyes can lie” is such an emotional, great line. We can be so easily taken in, fooled, disillusioned by such simple things … really enjoyed this!
