Chainsaw In My Chest

by Mezmeryz   Jul 18, 2009

Why is the heart concerned with pain?
And the brain concerned with thought?
Heart receives blood from veins,
And for brain, knowledge is sought.

If the heart existed alone,
Would it still be concerned with pain?
Because there's no brain to feel,
Would the heart still feel the strain?

Because what I've been feeling lately,
Tearing through my chest,
Is more or less a chainsaw,
In a 'who-dies-first' contest.

I've really had enough of this,
Missing you everyday.
Like a reality show gone wrong,
I just want to walk away.

I want to rip out this chainsaw,
Tearing through my chest.
I want to be able to breathe again,
I want to be able to rest.

I can't take this anymore,
You keep running through my head.
If this is what losing you feels like,
I much rather be dead.

    I am one of those poet that is impressed with expression over any unknown skills that many seem to site as they wish to place poetry out of the reach of those who have not been officially accepted into the quote literary world. None the less you expressed eloquently enough something I have felt.
