Heavy Heart


Heavy Heart

With a heavy heart,
I sit all alone;
Not too sure
Which way to roam.

I stare off blindly,
Into the abyss;
Wondering why
Life is like this.

Blackness has seeped
Into my chest,
Loathing resides –
Love is at rest.

Unbearable pain,
Unshed tears are cried;
Hopelessly lost
Upon the rising tides.

Prisoner to self,
Crushing forces inside;
Colliding energies,
Wither and die.

Shattered and broken,
Heavy heart to remain;
Pieces are falling
Like drops of rain.

About Dawn Marie DiMartino

I had lived most of my youth in New York, but have been a native of Florida for over 20+ years. I am recently separated, a mother of 2 adult children and I am a retired analyst. My passion for writing and drawing started at a very early age. I have continued through my adult life taking a pen to hand and compiling my innermost thoughts, feelings and expressions on paper. My writing and drawing keep me in a calming frame of mind when I am putting it all down. Some/Most of my writings can tell you about my personal story. I have published 4 poetry books, 3 children's books, and have been involved in 4 anthologies.
