Heavy Heart

The heart wants what it wants and can be left feeling empty or heavy.

By MICHELLE SMITHPublished 11 months ago • 1 min read

My heart is heavy with so much grief

These thoughts just keep wandering

Every time I think I'm done another one comes along

I feel like the wheels just keep on turning

I'm lost in all these crazy emotions

I feel confused; lost more and more

Feeling these walls just coming closer and closer

I can't breathe the air I feel like I'll die

I feel as though I'm drowning and no one is outside

I feel as if I'm alone in this world

Even though so many are just a call away

I feel as if I'm a burden

A complainer they just handle

Someone they just let babble

I'm lost in my own thoughts, bringing myself down

Feeling helpless and hopeless with each waking hour

I know that I mean something to someone out there but right now its hard to even see if they are there

I'm drowning slowly in this box that is closing

I can't feel my face, I just wake up and pace

Time passes slowly, I don't know if I'm coming or going

I'm difficult to handle and no one sees why

I'm working on my issues as fast as I know how

I want someone to understand, to see me as I am

To understand my sorrow and walk by my side through it all

Knowing I'll get better, it all takes time

Patience is the key here but when will I see mine

I'm feeling like I'm drowning each and every time

I want someone to rescue me from all this pain inside

Time will only prove that I can push on through

My knight in shining armor one day will become true

I just need to push on through this, get to the other side

Things will start to look up when I stop dwelling on this time

My heart is feeling heavy, I'll show it through these words

Feeling as though no one understands me; but through my poetry you'll see

My heart is heave, but I know in time it will heal

Keep pushing forward is all I can hear

    A lonely man is nothing but a river that flows into no other river. It has no tributaries to make it ful, when rains stop, it instantly lies bare, all the acquatic life die. What hope is there for such a river, it only needs a man made river to be dug out and connected to it to ensure her water flows non-stop to fill up it's emptiness.
