    would fall to the ground hoping to smash my pain into non-existence with my hands.
    My brittled fingers laced so tightly waiting for my tears to majestically disappear.
    I tried to clear my brain and focus on the unseen but every time I closed my eyes I saw my brown frame on the floor
    Elbows to knees pleading for mercy
    Mercy to be reunited with the burning blaze that I existed
    I tried so hard to fix it
    But he just didn’t care enough
    But it wasn’t between me and him
    It was between my hands
    I never created so much pressure without force
    But I needed to be heard
    I needed to be heard without words because words created no results
    Just more feelings of vivid depression
    I learned on my floor when I lacked everything and had absolutely no more
    That my heart had the most faint but powerful sound vocally
    It pleaded to the most high and magically he heard me
    My brittled fingers and hands smashed my pain
    My faith disintegrated the want of his small frame
    And me
    Well, I’ve been just fine
