Synonym for Sorrow

I need more synonyms for my sorrow
new adjectives for my agony,
better yesterdays before tomorrow
with the prescription for my sanity.
For what is sorrow without words,
or agony without actions?
I know not of wingless birds,
or lovers lacking some attraction.
I crave stronger metaphors for my madness
better nouns for my nostalgia
before I am eaten away by their sadness,
I suffer from caraphernelia.
For this madness is a thorn in my mind
I hold onto the heart you left here.
All these things that you left behind, 
what’s so good about picking up pieces my dear?

    Quite astonished that I'm the first one to read this! I thought your piece had a great flow and I love how I could feel and heaar the passion in it. Although I love your title, the poem itself tells me so much more. Very nice with this one
