BROKEN HEART, TEXAS by Jeff Callaway (Texas Outlaw Poet)

BROKEN HEART, TEXAS by Jeff Callaway

you broke my heart
in Austin girl
you tore my heart
right out
I walked right in
and saw you with him
saw your arms wrapped
tight round his back
and with your cinnamon lips
pressed right against his
your bottom rested flat
on his lap…

you kissed him again
until you saw me walk in
neither one of you
knew how to act…

I didn’t know what to say
I didn’t know what to do
I just wish you could
take it back…

and though we’re not through
you know I’ll always love you
and I’ll always take you back…

but if you do that again
then I might kill my dear friend
the diamond I put on your hand
would forever be cracked
and I’d live my life doomed
in a concrete zoo I can’t do
and I’d surely have a
heart attack…

and life would be
spilled beer around here
in Broken Heart, Texas…

and love would be
full of fear around here
in Broken Heart, Texas…
