My heart is hurting
today.....
baring weight of
lead -- a thousand pounds
pulling me
under water
breathing - lest I drown
everything is
fuzzy....no logic
can be found
within the gates
that secure
my soul

My heart is hurting
today...
peace is not an option
my weary mind is
tired -- unrest
pain killed
tears and my eyes
are blood-shot
red
red
red
red
white
rolled back inside
the recesses
of my mind
and I can't see
my thoughts
clearly...
agony of life
is calling out
my name
in many languages
foreign and
some unknown

My heart is hurting
today...
so much that
my body is
numb - dressed
in a blue robe
Miss Ery
came to visit
stayed quite a while
spoke and
kept me company
and we talked
nothin' but
Negativity

My heart is hurting
today....
my ears can't hear
friends who pray
but I listen to
voices provoking
me to make
decisions --
fighting
self....less...self...less
confused so
much that
depression
seen visions
of suicide
etched N2
wrists that
never really bled

My heart is hurting
today ~ and
with a murmured
voice and the last
breath I breathe
I'm asking
God to make a way
for me~~
