I broke like glass
I will never be the same

I could feel it inside of me
Shredding me
Gutting me
Reminding me why I was scared of love

Scared of feeling
Giving myself to another
Trusting them
With what was already broken

My heart reminiscing
Stabbing me with memories
Opening old scars
Their poison running deep

There is no escape
Trapped in your own head
Inside of your emotions
Feeling everything you don't want to feel

Decades of pain
Unleashed again
Wading in this river of misery
Praying you'll drown

    Wow, a very deep and sombre piece. Love hurts like hell when it's not with the right person. A lot of raw emotion in this.

    Take care, Em

    Very powerful and open to your emotions, thank you for sharing such personal pain. Love can be the most awesome when it's good but when its bad it can destroy you, as you have so eloquently stated, well done! Take care-Brenda

    A broken glass cannot be fixed. A broken heart may never heal. Decades of pain indicates a long road of mysery, trust issues amongst many other things. Some wounds may heal on the surface but the scars are skin deep. A very emotional write I can relate to. Take care
