without love, we die.

I was way too broken
and these words were spoken
not in love but pain
like a worthless token
once discarded
never to be seen again

well, it’s taken years
and countless tears
but love is not so frail
unleash the painful memory
and be released from jail
for love is like true freedom
you have to be stripped bare
you cannot live in memory
the past will keep you there

what use is no compassion
are you really dead inside
do you think that you can fashion
a beating heart from pride
rise up and feel emotions
and run the risk of pain
dance once more
embrace the love
it’s time to live again.
