A Little Bit Stronger - Poem by Cierrah Smiles

I managed it today,
To hold myself up,
To not fall apart and crumble in grief,
My chest ached its never ending pain,
I still felt weak and empty,
But now it was barable,
It was a nightmare you never wake up from,
A heart attack you never die or recover from,
This pain I felt ate me,
From the inside out,
Today though,
I could breath,
I could stumble but not fully walk,
My heart still ached but the hole was recovering,
I cried few tears,
And let someone in,
I made an effort today to be a little bit stronger

    Your heart was severly ripped open.It will take a long time to heal but the scar will remain.
    And there will be times far into the future those scars will ache and the only soothing relief
    you will get is to rub those memories over those scars and the pain will subside for a while. (Report) Reply
