Pain Without Love

For my best friend Curtis whose girlfriend is ripping is heart into with nothing but words...
His sadness is killing me
Watching and listening to every tear he loses
Every single sound of pain from his mouth
His body racked by violent sobs
All because the lost of his love
Her cold words pierced his gentle heart
Took his soul and broke it in three
He once was a gentle
But now broken and cruel and dying
He's been dying since the day she spoke
The day she spoke of hate and pain
They day she killed him with nothing but words
She walked away without a single glance back
To see the damage that has been done
What is done cannot go back
What once was never can come back
Who he was is never what he is.
