Shrunken Heart

Tears, they stain my cheeks for numerous reasons,
Too many reasons for you to count.
You'll need more than two hands to count upon your fingers.
And think you'll sound like a genius when you give me an answer.

Reason Number One: I'm trapped.
I'm closed in from the world.
The same events constantly happening over and over again.
Trapped on this roller coaster of twisted emotions.

Reason Number Two: I'm lost.
I'm running around in circles, not knowing what to do.
I run into a wall, blocking me off from society.
Lost, having no knowledge of where I am and when I'm there.

Reason Number Three: I'm terrified.
I'm running from the fear that keeps haunting me.
It's haunting me everywehere I go, with everything I do.
Terrified about being trapped, lost, and terrified.

Reason Number Infinity: I'm without you.
I look to my left and to my right, you're not there.
I see you when I close my eyes at night.
You- you're the one I miss. You and only you.

For these reasons, my heart is shrunken.
Those tears I cry, ache more and more every drop.
I cringe at the thoughts...
of having a shrunken heart.
