The Pulsating Heart
Trudging on a path deep in a forest
with the noise of loneliness humdrum in the ears
Felt the thoughts to be slowing down,
as if were on the edge of sleep.
In the quest of searching for one who cares,
I hug my pillow tight,
Yearning for someone to hold me through this night,
Only to wake up yelling,
Realizing being scared of being insane!
It's getting harder to hide all the feelings built up here!
These demons are destructive!
Scooping the heart right out of the chest,
As this constant pain prevails
My smile hide my tears,
My laugh hide my screams
I hurt on inside.
Trying to push these demons aside
Wearing A mask that always beamed
To hide the feelings behind A lie
Their kingdom prevails!
