Goodbye Heart of Evergreen

Poem

Swaying under the weight of the most recent painful blow

Hiding her face deep within, she cannot let it show

The sadness knocks her down so oft she knows not what to do

She hopes that if she hopes enough she might just make it through

The wounds that she accumulates collect upon her heart

They bite and rip and shred and steal, they’re tearing her apart

Deep and wide but locked inside where only she can see

She wishes life and all its strife would leave her just to be

Her waking moments tire her, and sleep does little good

in the mirror a shadow stands where her young self once stood

she cries and tries to realise the woman she had been

before life came and burned to dust her heart of evergreen.
