Song of the Shattered by Elise Pehrson

The light I saw
With every breath,
Like a firefly
I sought to catch.

With love like a lure
It pulled me in,
Kissed me with venom,
Injecting love like a sin.

Breaking apart
Like shattered glass
Left me broken--
Lost in my past.

It hurts to mend
The jagged pieces
I caught the bug
But had to release it.

Heartaches and heartbreaks,
The burns from hot coals,
Will damage the heart
But build up the soul

Now he is gone
And I miss last December
Long after I'm forgotten
I'll always remember.
