A Heart That Cries For Help! - Poem by Shelby Lanier

My heart beats fast
Out of my chest,
And here I am
Longing to feel at rest!

I want to scream
And let it all out,
All this heartbreak and anger
Makes me want to shout!

I just want to die
To make this pain leave me,
And this chill in my bone
Creeps up, and stabs my soul harshly!

The burden that I carry
Is deep inside my heart,
I want to let it go
But my soul is pierced with your evil dart!

I cry deep within me
And pour my heart to you,
But its thrown back in my face
And i disolve like the morning dew...

How can you stand there,
And watch me cry in pain;
While you laugh in my mysery
And smile at my shame!
