You said I broke my own heart,
          how is that so,when you held it in your hands.
          You said I broke my own heart,
          But it was you who made the plans.
          The plans to love me,
          The plans to be with me,
          But you went astray, you changed
          your love to caring all in a day.
          You said I should respect you  for telling me the truth,
          How, by denying the love I have for you?
          It changed over night or was it really there,
         The things you said to me my heart couldn’t bare.
          I search for compassion in pointless places,
          I search for love in empty faces.
         So tell me where did I go wrong, by opening up to you,
         Did the love change, when you finally learned the truth.
         You said it makes you feel guilty knowing what’s in my heart,
         What am I suppose to do, tear my heart apart…

      thank you Londra, I think we all have been there at one point in our lives, you know the moment when all the smoke clears and your left saying did I make all this up..

        Mikenda, men are good at makign you think you made it all up. I hate when men do that. We as women have to be smarter, but wisdom comes with time and experience. maybe we should start recording men..LOL! We can be like.. “uh-uh, on May 25, 2010 you said blah, blah, blah.” The tape recorder doesn’t lie! LOL!

          I agree with you on that Shalena but you they will turn around and say ,uh thta’s not my voice, who have you been messing with You know how they do that reverse physcology.

    I can relate to this because when you are led to believe that someone loves you and will love you forever then it seems as if they change over night, you’re left saying “You said” and coming to the realization that true love was never there.

    Thank you for sharing this and continue to allow the Lord to use you and have full control of your life.
