Heartless - Poem by Isabella Francis

I lay shrouded by blankets,
My shallow breathing could be heard in snippets.

I lay and wondered why was I still breathing,
Even though my heart had long stopped beating.

I had been rescued from drowning they say,
But why did you save me tell me I pray.

I tell you it was an accident,
But my conscience screams that it was a deliberate incident.

I felt the waves embrace me as I fell down in the sea,
Of all the ppl in this world it was chosen to be me.

I'd fought with it and won with a terrible mess,
The fight did all to me and left me heartless.

    these are the extreme form of feelings...
    and the best thing is that you are perfectly successful in rolling them into words making a road which can be traveled by those who have the password of your heart..
