Shredded Heart

Ominous clouds hover, threatening torrential onslaught
Melancholy swarms, seeking a perch to rest
Pain, closely guarded, carefully concealed, erupts toward the surface
Tear slips unbidden from it’s duct, evidence of emotional betrayal
Unrealized dreams, misplaced hopes twist; a cacophony piercing the soul
Artfully fabricated fascade cracks under circumstance’s relentess compression
Strength fails, courage fades, despondency creeps in
Silent pleas no answer yield, choice made, trust over fear
Furrowed brow, determined gaze, one step forward, painful haze
Bruised, bleeding, unsteady limp, Overcomer, refuse to quit
