Pouring From My Mouth


I wish some days I could remove my heart
Just dig into my chest and throw it away
Shed away my pain and despair
I know that it sounds sad and depressing
People tend to worry about me because I feel this way
But it is alright
Everyone feels this way some times
It is a fact of life
One I have dealt with before
Maybe not as severe as it is now
But when I write or speak about it
Putting it on display for others to see
To know and recognize my thoughts and feelings
It makes things a little better
To just dump everything off my mind and soul
Like washing away an impurity within me
I hope that my day comes
That I can stop feeling like this so often
It has been less frequent
But life is not as glamorous as they think
I wish they could see and understand what my days are like
But I chose it
And I do not regret it
Everything happens for one reason or another
It just takes effort to go from there to something good
So I will continue to rip open my chest
And let these words pour out of my mouth like warm blood
It is the ink upon my paper
All of it real and truth

That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
