How to Free a Broken Heart

by Cheyenne Button 3 years ago in love poems
Report Story

A Poem to Those Held Captive to Their Own

Breathing into the depths of an endless void.

Eyes wide open.

Heart imprisoned in a frozen layer of regret and opioids.

Hands splayed to grasp any form of hope that passes by.

In a moments notice you are lost and broken.

A sea of pain sweeps you like the warm sway of a lullaby.

Both a punishment and a token.

Perhaps one day this lullaby will melt away your fetters and set you free.

Perhaps more pain is all you need.
