I walk around with a hole in my heart

I walk around with a weight on my soul

I walk around with a heart all black

I struggle to take every breath

The hole that I cannot mend, I try every day

The weight that I cannot lift, I smile every day

The black my heart cannot shake, I ask to rise every day

The breathing that doesn’t ease, I fill my lungs every day.

Moments blend into days and days into weeks

It just doesn’t end.
