The pointblank outpouring of the feminine soul - in a state of anguish & mourning - receives its full measure in this exceptional classic "Un-break My Heart"; sung with truly unique voice inflections & intonations by Toni Braxton; composed & written by Diane Eve Warren. We hear our heroine pleading for and commanding her deceased or departed lover to return to her immediately to assauge her loss and hurt, "Don't leave me in all this pain, Don't leave me out in the rain..." The use of the imperative is so forceful and direct, it heightens the impact of the song, and renders us as wrung out with catharsis - as she is.

Braxton's soft, silky utterances easily immerse the listener in the strength and power of her heavier vocal chords - when she pours it on, "Say you'll love me again, Undo this hurt you caused When you walked out the door And walked out of my life; Un-cry these tears, I cried so many nights...Un-break my heart!" The excellent video for this song with its dramatic intensity lifts this rendition into being scene- and plot-driven, like "Mourning Becomes Electra" with the lights turned down.

This in turn builds plot and 'grief' motif within 'surround sound' orchestration. Braxton's intensity, her passionate request for her lover to return - becomes one of the more powerful crescendos in pop music. This would not be so - if her lips were sealed - they had to be un-sealed - her depth of expression from deep within her soul - may cause us to grieve (our catharsis, her purge of emotion). We listen to her final refrain and empathize with her loss. It is quite satisfying if not exhausting. We hope to be drenched in her emotional denouement upon re-playing this cinematic song. It is yours to enjoy when the mood is right.
