THE PAIN THAT TEARS MY HEART APART

THE PAIN THAT TEARS MY HEART APART

Have you ever tasted a restrained sob

No? Well I have

You don’t get to taste d salt of your tears

All you taste is pain

Your throat constricts

Your eyes burn

You wish an end to the stabbing pain in your heart

And you cry out loud without a sound

Your stomach hurts

I look around for a place to weep

Nowhere in sight

Busy streets

Nosy neighbors

A one minute cry

A one million crowd

Steers of pity and curiosity

My mission for peace fails

So my aching legs hurry…hurry…hurry…without taking a break

I cover ground as quick as a rolling ball…

I clench my fists as I hold back another sob

Off off I go

Sweet peace I seek

A place to cry I desire at that moment

A broken heart

A pretty soul

The pain that tears my heart apart
