Goodbye, My Heart

By Quietus

Goodbye, my heart
You were strong and brave
Even if you were love’s mistreated slave.

You were bruised and broken
A million times
But I can’t fix you with these silly rhymes.

They cut you up
And spit you out
Carved their initials with a metal rout.


Kind of like how a cat
Plays with their prey
They tortured you before their slay.


And now here you are
Dying in my chest
Bloody and broken in your final rest.


In the end
We were both stupid, my heart
Letting silly boys tear us apart.


We’ve wasted our time
Loving worthless guys
We never could see through their caring disguise.


I will always remember you,
My dear friend
You were here with me until the end.

Now I say my final goodbyes
As we both depart
Oh, goodbye to you, my dearest heart.
