Heart Of Gold - Poem by Sez Farr

They said I have a heart of gold,
That I was sent down from heaven and into the fold,
An innocent, beautiful creature of love,
An angel that flew on the wings of a dove,
I was their everything; they’re shining light,
That would guide them throughout the rainy night,
As the years went past, my beautiful innocence was traded,
For anger, pain and torment, all sweetness had faded,
They wonder what has happened to the apple of their eye,
Because I hardly laugh, with heartbreak I cry,
They know something’s wrong, I hardly eat, I hardly sleep,
To get rid of this pain I cut myself deep,
Each step is on broken glass,
Because all I feel is this agony that has come to pass,
They see me stare nightly at the starlit sky,
Their hearts break when they see me shatter and cry,
They’re wondering where their sunshine has gone,
But she is right here holding her heart that is torn,
I sit in darkness where there used to be light,
All alone this tormenting pain I struggle to fight,
Trying so hard to hold my tears,
While being controlled by all my fears,
Their scared for me they hear me scream,
When I wake up from nightmares I dream,
All they see is the anger in my gaze,
And all the pain that sets my eyes ablaze,
Their so saddened no longer can they dance and whirl,
With their sunshine, with their little girl,
I feel their hearts break because they finally know,
It is time to let their little girl go.
