Artist's Description

Troubled Heart
Written By CarolM

I awoke one morning
All alone
To find my world had gone away
What happened?

So much hurt lies inside

I pray I’m really not awake
But with every breath I take
I feel the pain of my broken heart

I yearn for the love
That kept me alive
My troubled heart sighs
Sometimes it cries

Sorrow comes in many forms
My troubled heart is one
I’m drowning in my crimson blood

I gasp to breathe,
I fall to my knees

I feel my heart will never mend
What lies within is my own sin

In my troubled heart
Your flowers still grow
The ones that smell so sweet

Entwined in the pain
They will always bloom
They are the only thing I have left to hold
When I weep

I’ve made mistakes I can’t deny

It’s my time to cry.

I believe that the way we live our life is a affected by the choices we make. Be careful, one wrong decision, one fleeting desire, can bring unforgiving pain to the one you love.
