Dashed hope

Heart dropps time stops. Frozen in shock To the ticking of the clock. I beg for the return of the floorboards stolen from under my feet. Gasping for air, stranded on an oxygen-deprived planet. main supporting pillars crumble as joy is dashed from my world my eyes go dead. with nothing but pain rolling around in my head. * I scratch at my chest digging for the whole in my heart. It's for the best. mind off the charts. eyes brimming with tears newly confirmed fears chest collapsing on me I no longer can see Wraped in a cloak of shame I officailly lost the game. My playing peice returns to start. wishing for the stop of my heart. offered to numb it out by the day. still "No" I shall say. I go home to cry alone. Dread flowing to my bone. waiting to repeat, on my self I beat. hiding from the sun, I'm so done. Tired from the strain, Dancing in the rain fractured heat alone, waiting with a broken heart of stone.
