She seems to be so strong,
And then she lets that one tear fall.
The carefully constructed facade slips away,
And again, she can feel it all.
The pain is just too much to bear
And it's so much more than she can take.
Can you see how much it hurts
As her shoulders start to shake?
So many memories tend to overwhelm,
And too much love overflows.
Too much pain can tear you apart.
A heart denied can only slow.
Her pillow dries only to be wet again,
When she begins to weep.
The only relief she ever has
Are the stolen moments of a dreamless sleep.
Hurtful words all seem to maim.
Depression threatens to kill.
Time passes with no meaning
Until her heartbeat stills.
Too much love can overflow.
It's too much for someone to take.
She came to despise the sound of her heart.
A love suppressed will turn to hate.
