Breaking Her Heart

I didn’t know her heart was mine to break
She didn’t need another broken heart
Considering the pain that was at stake
I can’t believe she took the chance to start
Her love with me; I felt her deep within
The simple words I chose to mark her soul
She let me feel the warmth beneath her skin
But warmth can burn when touched without control
We held each other when we drifted near
We let each other go, to drift away
I should have sealed our bond but now I fear
It doesn’t matter what I want to say
Her broken heart is deaf; my words are trite
She’ll never love again, but then, she might.
