Off The Tracks

Here we are
Stranded on the train
Running off the tracks
But
You promised me
That this was the way
To go
So here we go
Running off the tracks
 
Here I am, gasping 
For air 
Raindrops falling 
From my cheeks
When I realized
How you really 
Thought of me
It hit me like a runaway train
 
Here we were 
Stranded on the train 
Running off the tracks
 
We were never meant
To be 
But that’s okay
Because at least 
I had realized 
How you were really
Treating me
It hit me like a runaway train 
 
Because
Here we were 
Stranded on the train 
Running off the tracks
But 
You promised me 
That this was the way
To go
So here we go
Running off the tracks
 
I watched you go
I never thought 
This would be the very last time
You watched me go
You never thought 
To tell me we were out of time
 
We were never meant to be 
A train running off the tracks
I realized when
We were 
Stranded on the train 
Running off the tracks
But 
You promised me 
That this was the way
To go
So here we go
Running off the tracks
 
You watched me go
You never thought 
To tell me you were just killing time

 

 

Thoughts on heartbreak:

What does it mean to get your heart broken?

The truth is we give our hearts away…
We allow them to take our hearts because they somehow showed us that we can trust them, we can be vulnerable, and they will take care of our hearts.

They tell us to get on the train even though it is running off its tracks, destined to crash. But you believe things would change, things would get better.

But sometimes, they do not turn out what we pictured them to be. They change their minds in an instant and it hits us like a train… Because we never saw it coming.

That is why our hearts can be broken. Because they do not realize how precious and how extraordinary it is to choose to give our heart away. They can be careless. They place our hearts in the bottom of their pocket for when they want it.

Even though you could be much happier, much more vibrant, or even better off without them, it still hurts in this very moment that your heart shattered.

The moment seems forever frozen in time and everyone around you is moving on and living but you.

It still hurts when they get off the train without you realizing it, leaving you in the middle of the night while you were dreaming of love & security. Leaving no trace behind, not even a note.

Immediately, you have to make a choice: stay on a train that will never go far because they left and thought they took your heart with them OR get off the train, let them go, understanding that you still have your heart all this time.

It may seem like your heart is gone or stolen, but it is only numb due to the torment, but one day, it will beat again and it will love again…
