Why Does A Broken Heart Have To Bleed? - Poem by Hannah Diane Williams

No one ever sees me.
They all think I’m just fine.
Inside, my heart is breaking,
So, I cry and I cry.
Still, no one seems to care.
These scars left inside me never let me go.
The mistakes once made,
The hearts once broken,
Are now the scars I hide inside.
My heart hasn’t stopped breaking.
I don’t know why.
This never ending piece of broken glass
Is already shattered into millions of tiny pieces.
You don’t have to step on them.
Those words you say only make it worse.
You don’t know who I am
Or even where I’m from.
Still, you stand and stare.
You talk about me
As if I can’t hear
Or as if I’m not there.
My heart’s already broken.
I know that no one cares.
I know that no one sees me.
You don’t have to make it worse than it already is.

    Wow like I always wanted to say that but all the words I came up with seemed lame and I tore all the papers with the words on it because I didn't think anyone would care to write something back and say hey I care, but deep down you know they don't. They're just saying that to make you feel better about life and stuff. (Report) Reply
