Cut it away
Somebody cut away this desperate heart
– Jackson Browne, “Cut it away”

I say it’s complicated
While for all practical purposes

I’m single
And more alone than ever

Deep inside I know
That it could not be different

But that desperate heart
Keeps hanging on

Practical and heart
Don’t rhyme

– Niebla ( © 2010 )

Written upon inspiration by One Single Impression.
