Dying of a Broken Heart

When the heart is full
One has the utmost trust in others
One is at their happiest

When the heart is at 75%
One's trust has been broken
One becomes depressed

One's heart is at 50%
Heartlessness begins
But still have little heart just others can't see

One's heart is at 25%
When one gives trust again
But at great risk

When one's trust
Has been betrayed again
One dies of a broken heart

One maybe about 37%
Too afraid to give trust again
So others beware of the consequences
