WHEN YOUR HEART IS BREAKING


When your heart is breaking

Oh the moonlight knows too well

To have serenaded, yet been rejected

Sent away with midnight blues

 

When your heart is breaking

Oh the moonlight knows too well

To watch the one you love, love another

Desperately yearn for another

 

When your heart is breaking

Oh the moonlight knows too well

For he chased the sea and drowned in pain

Watching her gentle waves embrace the lighthouse

  1. the use of light/knowledge/sight (moonlight, watch, watching and lighthouse) and darkness/ignorance/blindness (midnight blues, heartbreak, drowned in pain) in this piece is brilliant. either side of this equation is not a good place to be in such a situation. i like the metaphor of pain/heartbreak as drowning (ensuing a failed love), and the imagery of escape and better future (embrace the lighthouse). but above all, I like the metaphor of love as unpredictable sea – if you cannot swim you will drown, you’ve got to know how to surf this sea, but as we all know, even good swimmers drown when their senses are compromised.
