Hardened Heart

Hardened Heart

When you look at me
you do not see me anymore
If you did then you would know 
The light in my eyes left long ago
A fake smile is all that remains
Sharp-spoken words became daggers 
piercing a heart once full of love
Now hardened from neglect
Closed off in loneliness 
It beats still
but who is there to care
