    (The screams of) A breaking heart
    Goes unheard

    I hear the pain of sadness
    Breaking…like glass, as
    The lifeline of a once-buoyed heart
    Totters from its teetering perch

    Why?

    Why did yesterday have to happen?

    Will tomorrow still…come?

    I read
    (In a whisper)
    The things important to me
    Through the chaos of misery
    I hear the
    Quiet

    (It is the whisper that sings loudest)

    Long days…
    Excruciating nights
    Where I fight for a moment’s peace
    (In my sleep)

    Yes…
    It’s quiet…inside these four walls
    But in my head…a raging war carries on
    A tug-of-war
    A battle of wills
    A drive to control the destiny I feel

    Pain…
    Broke the plane (of rational thought)
    …Disturbed the surface of
    Peaceful calm

    There is comfort
    In the knowledge that
    Hatred exists
    …Knowing there is a REALM
    Where we can let our
    Emotions
    BE

    A place where we don’t have to
    HARNESS the pain

    Where ANGER can roam…FREE

    Where I can take off the mask
    And be
    ME

    I read whispered words
    That generates gentle breezes
    Of refreshing
    Clam

    I see
    Fated blues
    Doled out for Heartache
    …And blistering pain

    The tears
    …Once free-flowing
    Has ebbed low
    A trickle of their former self

    Depression

    O, the weight of it
    Hung over the horizon
    Like a too-heavy blanket
    Draped…In the darkness of
    A depressed mind
    As time unwinds unto itself
    Cleaved out of a reality foreign to me

    But “Partly Cloudy…with chances of thundershowers” returned
    I could not discern good from bad
    As madness came through

    I knew

    The PAIN was strong

    I knew

    The pain was STRONG

    I KNEW

    The pain was strong enough
    To engulf
    Sanity
    And
    Self
    And
    All the faithful-hopefuls
    Self holds onto

    I knew

    If tomorrow was to be
    It would have to come from me
    But I could not see
    A flicker of a light
    At the end of the tunnel

    And I’m tired…
    Tired of loving and losing
    Always choosing
    Ms “Wrong for Me”
    Cannot see the “Shore of Happiness”
    For the “Sea of Loneliness”
    Surrounding me

    YES…I see
    A time for all SEASONS
    …A season for all things

    BUT…
    Day by day, I see
    The pain BREAKS bring

    There are so many things I want to say about
    this piece but I might start crying. I really feel
    you here so DEEP. This is an AWESOME WRITE!!!

    ....Just know time heals everything.



    I hear the shatters from your broken heart
    Echoing through the air
    I hear them so deep
    I feel like I was there
    …..Actually I was
    I know them all to well
    because I too have been there
    and returned from that emotional hell

    Makes you question everything
    you thought you knew and understood so well
    when the one that said they loved you
    just jumps up and bell

    Baby Im here to tell you
    there is light at the end of the tunnel
    Come and take my hand
    I’m gonna dig you out of this breaking pain
    with my personal shovel

    I know you might not trust me
    because of what you’ve been through
    But if you give up on luv
    It will never come to you

    I wanna take you on a journey
    to 4EVER’s SEA OF LUV
    Your days will never be lonely
    Because I’m not going anywhere
    My beloved

    Go a head take your time
    No pressure from me
    Just remember one little thing
    I will be waiting for you
    on the Shore of Happiness
    I promise if you come there
    You will see me​

    there was a time...

    ...before today. a time when i didn't realize the TRUTH of love...when i didn't know what REAL love meant. i was during that time...that i pained with such sorrow. TODAY, i better understand my role in the LOVE process. i realize that to love truthfully, is to look out for the person loved. IF I LOVE THAT PERSON...AND THAT PERSON FEELS BETTER OFF WITH SOMEONE ELSE...IT IS MY RESPONSIBILITY TO BE HAPPY FOR THAT PERSON'S HAPPINESS...NOT TO BE HURT FOR THE LACK OF A ROLE SHE PLAYS IN MY LIFE. today, i want those people around me who wants to be around me. if they do not want to be with me...i offer them directions to where they can be happy. it took time to mature to this point...but being here is a wonderful place to be. there is no JEALOUSY. there is no ANGER. there is no FRUSTRATION that i wasn't GOOD ENOUGH to be with. i am HAPPY with me...and what i bring to the table.

    yes...the screams of a breaking heart goes unheard. so, i got rid of the breaks.

    THANKS for reading.

    Baller...

    So sad, the pain of heartbreak that you have so eloquently expressed here....
    but It's nice...so very nice, that thing you do with your pen.

    Your use of descriptive verse was just fantastic, you so captured that feeling. And your comments above, if you're unhappy with someone, tell them exactly why, don't leave them wondering. Well written piece poet.
