Afflicted Heart

Shattered to peices,
Scattered All across the floor.

Yet somehow remains beating,
As you walk out the door.

Confusion and frustration is what's left behind,
By those torturous words that replay in my mind.

Laying here crying, praying its just a dream,
Gasping to catch my breath from my silent screams.

Even though the pain feels like its too much to bear,
I know there's a reason, a reason its there.

The pain alone keeps my heart beating,
Only I can be responsible for its mistreating.

But I know that this proves my feelings were real,
I have nothing left except to speak how I feel.

Broken to bits, tattered and torn, I'll eventually pick up the peices,
And once again be Reborn.
