When the Crystal Shatters

She lays awake in the dead of night
Unable to sleep
She wants so much to be someone else
She starts to weep

Her heart is made of crystal
And light in its purest state
And thus far it's untouched by sorrow or hate

But when it shatters
She's in tears
For all the pain
Through all the years
It took to build up
Her fragile heart
It takes mere seconds
To break it apart

It's all gone

She cries at the break of dawn
Too sad to sleep
Her life changed in the blink of an eye
A black heart to keep

Where is the innocence that she had?
Why was she victimized by sorrow and hate?
Inside her, there now is darkness in its purest state

Her heart is made of crystal
And darkness in its purest state

But when it shatters
She's in tears
For all the pain
Through all the years
It took to build up
Her fragile heart
It takes mere seconds
To break it apart

It's all gone

Now she's gone
