My Broken Heart

You’re back here once more;
my feet are running from you.

I’m tired of broken promises
and slipping into regret.

You had your opportunity,
but you lost it long ago.

You’re a heartbreaker
looking for another capture.

But I’m not like the others,
I’m strong enough to resist.

So I’m leaving, so far away;
don’t haunt my life anymore.

Inspired by: “Jar of Hearts" by Christina Perri
