Heartache

The hurt is real, the damage done
Pain, merely a reflex
Its daily visit has begun
Figuring out why can be complex

Pain, merely a reflex
Never-ending heartache
Figuring out why can be complex
Help seems so far away

Never-ending heartache
Only resting in sleep
Help seems so far away
Distress causes me to weep

Only resting in sleep
Sadness restlessly pounding on my door
Distress causes me to weep
My heart is sore

Sadness restlessly pounding on my door
Its daily visit has begun
My heart is sore
The hurt is real, the damage done

Overall I like your writing. I especially liked the way that you wrote this one. The format was really cool to me. [How you took the second and fourth line and made the the first and third]. haha, I know I'm easily entertained, but I liked that :D

Thank You very much! Sorry i didn't see your comment earlier, but I really do appreciate it! I enjoyed playing around with a structured rhyme scheme with this poem, it was more challenging (for me) but definitely worth it.
