Heartache

So, why do you come to me?
Am I the only target you see?
Have I not done my best?
Did I allow myself too much rest?
Heartache, why don't you set me free?

Am I allowing myself in this situation?
Am I lacking the necessary persuasion?
Or am I just not good enough?
Why is choosing for me this tough?
Do I just miss the right radiation?

They say that wisdom comes with the years
Yet, to me it seems as if it just disappears
I know nothing about charming
I might not even be heartwarming
Heartache--please leave and take with you my tears...
