After The End - Poem by Heather Marie Mortimer

Each beat of my heart screams love and loathing
Tho know it I, this is Heartbreak's clothing.
Be calm, my Heart! T'is unbearable, this pain
Each contraction echoes what I have lost to gain.

Do not be empty, my Heart! You hold all my all
Was it Fate that caused my fate to fall?
T'was my thoughts which broke my heart in pieces
And these thoughts possess no thought that eases.

Irrational Heart! What is it you seek?
The strength of your pounding has left you so weak!
I drown in the waves, I break in my breath
I pray this is not my heart and soul's death.
