it’s a knot deep in my gut
that’s too tight to pull apart.
it’s an aching in my chest
that some would call a broken heart.
but i say its more than that
as this ache begins to spread.
it’s a burning from my toes
right up to the throbbing in my head.
it’s the lump in my throat
when the tears swell in my eyes.
it’s the spasm of my chest
as i try to swallow these tears i cry.
it’s the crumbling of a love
that started from a sideways glance.
it’s 2 destined souls being torn apart
before they were ever given the chance.
