Heart Vice - Poem by john silvia

it hurts again
it started squeezing harder
it won't let up
and i try to pretend
i just smile louder
i won't let anyone know

it has begun constricting
it doesn't ever end
it won't ease up
i can't show that im hurting
this attack i can't begin to fend
i won't let anything show

it will make me lame
it leaves no oppening
it won't give up
i will never be the same
i am left only hoping
but if i die, will i go above or below?

am i to be trapt forever in this heart vice?
