Heartache

by Lady Nik   Dec 31, 2019


My heart hurts...
not this vessel behind my ribs.
Far beyond that my soul aches
for a reason, a remnant for me
to helplessly cling onto.

Desperation has led me here.
This place so dark, the light
inside me refuses to shine.
Frozen, I remain paralyzed beneath
this pain mirroring my life.

My heart hurts...
as I shuffle through our
memories where everything
was new and pristine. Now
decay follows me as I try to
remember your loving face.

There is no love without light,
just broken shadows
trying to survive beyond
the realm of despair

Leaving my soul to ache.
