Behind my smile you wont see,

So many things I try and hide

The dull ache inside my chest


The weary pull of each breath

To inhale, laden with a sorrowed sigh,

Bitterness is absent,

In place a yearning.

The dark emptiness created within,

Painful hunger for something unknown

The tired heart that’s beats


Shattering warmth

Scattered pieces cast away

The weight of sadness.
