My Heart Hurts - Poem by empty shell

It hurts so much my shoulder blades ache
I’m so empty that my stomach growls

It hurts, my heart hurts

My jaw is sore from grinding my teeth
my arms are weak from clenching my fists

It hurts, my heart hurts

My ears are ringing inside of a vacuum
my legs just don't want to work

It hurts, my heart hurts

Bring back the light
that fuels my soul
come back to where you belong
back inside my heart
your home

    Bring back the light
    that fuels my soul
    come back to where you belong
    back inside my heart
    your home.... bring me back to my home, where there is no negativity and my soul and my mind and my intellect is free...... thank you very much dear poet. tony

    This poem physically hurts reading it- everyone has had a heart ache at
    some time in their lives. The last verse says it poignantly and with true class.

    Good poem! My interpretation: Inside of the heart, deep thing to build a house ~ nothing but love, I feel. Taken away nothing to keep, but pain.. Inspiring write, thank you for share,10 (Report) Reply
