Broken

You broke my trust for you
Just as you broke your promises.
You broke my love for you
Just as you can break a twig.
You smashed my heart into a million pieces
Just as you can give a shirt a thousand creases.
So now you got me broken inside.
Sometimes now I just want to hide.
You never cared for me; that's why I feel broken,
And you know that I'm not at all joking.
You never loved me.
That's why I'm choking up with tears.
You never listened to me.
It's like you didn't have ears.
Your heart is cold; it's always been pitch black,
And now you made my heart have a huge crack.
Whenever I stood up,
You shoved me back down.
You always acted like I wasn't around,
And when I had the guts to say something,
You only ignored me.
That's why sunshine
Is something you'll never see.
That's also why you'll never be
Like a father to me.
Whenever I spoke up, you hushed me.
Whenever I told you something, you shushed me.
That's why I'm leaving you behind,
But unfortunately only in my mind.
