Dear God

Dear God,, I said to him
There is a stone where my heart should be
No matter how deep I dig within myself
I can't seem to feel anything anymore 
I watch the little girl with the dirty face 
She's eating ice cream and has smeared it

Dear God,, As I  said to him
There is a stone where my heart should be
I have all these memories floating  within 
I can't seem to remember how they feel
Pain seems to be dripping from the walls 
You just think and there it is as always

Dear God ,,I  was saying to him
There is a stone where my heart should be
It's hard to look out from the world within
Sometimes there is a dis - connect 
Fantasy and reality seem to be mixing
Then you just don't know where to begin

Dear God ,,I should of said to him
There is a stone where my heart should be
Things might be different if not for the dance
Yes I'm sure of it,, things would be different 
Things changed in my world after the dance
It gets lonely when you live inside your mind
Dear God ,,I said to him
There is a stone where my heart should be
I thought there was love,, yes I'm sure of it
Though you took that from me didn't you 
Nothing and no one can help me now
So I'll just stay here , , within myself

    I like the line you titled it and used throughout the poem. It's a great line to do many stanzas off it, as you have done. Good one, Debbie.

    there's a hole where my heart use to be ; beating and vibrant but now as silent as can be. you stole the very heart of me. with every law my mother ever taught me. yuou put a hole where a heart should be.
