Theme: Grief

Broken Heart

Can't breathe
I can't hear my heart beat
Feels like someone is punishing me
For a sin, as I take a breath
Feels like someone has punched his hand
In my chest
And has squeezed my heart
And then has pulled it
Away from my body
With it pulling every

Feels like I am alive
But I hardly feel it
I try and try not to think
Of things I have been through
But I can't help it
Every time I shut my eyes
It feels like I have been
Put into a grave
Dark, silent yet full of sorrow'
And every time I try to breathe
Someone throws more soil on my chest
They see me so hopeless
They see me dead
Even though I haven't
Shut my eyes yet'

Feels like
I am being buried alive
I can see everyone
I can hear the sounds of
But I see no mercy in their eyes
And I have no hope
To live or
To break my silence

Feels like I am dying slowly
With an awful pain
buried deep in my heart...

Comment Your poem is very emotional and at the same time deep and thoughtful. It draws a perfect picture of your feelings and the experience of that reality that happened to you.

I wish you feel better now, I hope you have passed through your hard times and have compromised with your narrowness.

May Almighty Allah give you patience. Ameen.
