Heavy Heart


You weigh on my heavy heart

Each night I feel the pain

It creeps up slowly

It does not ease

To my disdain

When the sun rises

I return

Relieved the pain has gone

But I know it will return

At night again

I hear the sounds at night

Trying to feel you

Through the wind

I don’t know why

You are not there

To comfort me

Or the pain

I need to release you

To ease my heavy heart

It is the only way that I

Can feel happiness again

So sad, the past has a way of returning for quite sometime. I wish i could say it gets easier, but I guess pain is there for us to grow.

Good write.

Always a good thing to wash away the past. When it lingers it can take a stranglehold on your everyday life. Very sad and heart wrenching, but better to move on. Nice work.
