3:0

When I was 18 I called my best friend in tears

Halfway through a 12 pack of cheap gas station beer

I told her he left, told her he was gone,

Told her I couldn’t breathe, that my chest felt all wrong.

It took a long time, she gave me a warm shove

Taught me that level of pain only happens with your first love

Since then I’ve loved and I’ve lost but I’ve never hurt that bad again

In fact sometimes in love, I find myself playing pretend.

And it’s been 2 years since the last love took the centerpiece of my heart,

The one you need to stop the whole thing from falling apart

And I thought I was invincible, I thought I was strong,

But you left yesterday night too and now my chest feels all wrong.

  1. All love gone astray leaves the broken heart pain=pain is pain.
    The only way to avoid any pain because love didn’t work out and if you remember this quote from me, you will never be in pain because of love going wrong:

    “To Love and understand Love, Love must be upper most on your Mind.
    innermost in your Heart, and deepermost in your Soul” _-Van Prince
