Broken Heart

You only know the half-truths,

The whispers I allowed to creep into your ears,

I knew that if you were faced with the reality of me,

Your heart would be shattered and your eyes bleeding tears,

So I just let you hear as much as you needed,

I sat and watched coldly as your world fell apart,

And I didn't dare to look at you, to see that broken heart.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I wrote this to try to explain why I acted the way I did. I could've stopped it all right there and then, but I didn't. Because it hurt to see your heart breaking in my hands. I'm sorry.
