One Last Poem
My heart feels as if it's going to explode.
I feel so deathly sad and all alone.
Not empty in any way,
I know this because the pain is so intense,
it's approaching a level that's insane.
If I could cry anymore I would openly weep,
but I'm all cried out,
dehydrated from all the days and nights
I've lied in bed crying myself to sleep,
wishing that I were dead.
You might ask if I truly have a heart,
and I don't blame you not one bit.
I assure you that I do.
It's filled with immense love,
but tons of sorrow and regret too.
So one last poem before I retire.
I just needed to expel the overwhelming
feelings from inside,
an intense, blazing, raging sad fire
that just hurts my heart,
it makes my stomach sick and I double over.
Just one last poem to artistically cry out.
It's not very good
but the hell with it.
My last poem, my heart, and stomach
are hurting so bad inside.
I'm intensely weeping.
Goodbye here from my last sub standard poem.
I've lost my drive, my heart, that helped me write.
I resign from this art
I can't continue on.
