my heart goes crazy with each tear drop that falls- wanting so much to explode
trying to maintain my composure

i’m angry
i’m hateful
i’m tired

how long does it last-
how long until enough is enough?

everyone promises a golden bridge to cross-
a shoulder to lean on
a call for help

but where were you when i fell to my knees in despair
when i cried so hard i couldnt catch my breath
when i awoke with such a feeling- i don’t matter

you weren’t there to catch these tears- you didnt attempt to wipe them away
you didnt pray for my happiness, you didnt ask for my forgiveness
you didnt check to see if i was ok.

my heart is sad-
it cries
it bleeds
its broken

another heartbreaks- another cries
