There’s a certain kind of heartache
That doesn’t follow heart break
From a love better to have had and lost
It’s one that goes at a greater cost
It can’t be healed with tears and a pint
It hides and waits just out of sight
When you think you’re past it, it reappears
And grants you a new set of fears
It’s a sinking feeling, a gaping hole
A shadow cast over your soul
A parasite that’s taken root
A pain you feel without the proof
It grows inside you
It weaves and binds you
And you’re confined to
Whatever it wants
So you learn to move a new way
To work with it every day
Like a well-managed disease
It’s the grief that no one sees
