When you say love I hear hate
he showed me the signs
I was used
my heart shattered
I feel like a smashed mirror
the pain is like a tidal wave
it floods over me, drowning
I thought I was loved
a door shut
rejection a bee sting
slammed in my face
my tears a hurricane
my heart broken glass
never again
will I love

Hello, Viviana,
A lot of description of pain here, which fits the title for certain. I am wondering why the opening line focuses on what is heard - when what follows is so deeply felt. "...pain is like a tidal wave..." I can very much relate to that!
Thank you!
