Heart Broken - Poem by Shastina McElmurry

My heart feels like it was just crushed by one million pounds.
My life is a bunch of screaming demons well that’s how it sounds.
My body trembles in the cold.
For his hand I can never hold.
I blink and my life flashes in front of me.
I guess we were never meant to be.
Im alone and scared in this place I call home.
I can never find where I belong so I just Rome.
My heart was abused.
My life was misused.
Im dying a long painful death.
You want even care when I run out of breath.
