    A Heart Shattered

    Slivers of resentment masked my discontent

    ‘Tis a tortured cry from an aching soul
    Fables. Deceit. Lies I’ve told

    Like humpty dumpty, it all came down

    Shattered

    The creech, creech, creech as my heart broke
    Brought increasing agony as nerve endings woke
    And the horrid stench of sordid woes
    Gave rise to the filth of the sins I chose

    When day break came and my pain did not cease
    I prayed for forgiveness but got no relief

    With shards of emotions splayed across the floor
    My wailing heart did scream once more

    Chasms and fissures began to grow
    As splintering sounds of cracking grew
    Overwhelming the silent winds that blew
    Erasing happiness I once knew
    ‘Til the sound of heartbreak no longer filled the air
    No misery and anguish. No feigned despair

    Shattered

    I followed the lights that dotted the east
    Met damaging shards of emotional grief
    (I had inflicted on me)

    There were no immediate signs of relief
    No shred of hope, or sacred belief
    No peace to pacify my weary soul
    No stories told of long ago

    I’m held sway by Hell’s wicked beast

    Never again

    Wow, the suffering in this piece is so excellently detailed it was transferred as I read. A soul-felt write!

    As always, nice to read you Baller!
