Gutted

Light headed
Shaking
Stomach caving in
I feel my face paling
Lips agape
I feel like I’m dying
And crying
Tears trickle down my face
Down my neck
Over my bloody heart
It was handed back to me
Torn apart
Shreds
I feel like I’m dying
Drip
Drop
Blood mixing with tears
And shame
Embarrassment colors my cheeks pink
Before I pale again
Shame
I’m so ashamed
Drip
Drop
I want to forget
Drip
Drop
So many mistakes and regrets
Drip
Drop
Apologies have dried out my lips
Drip
Drop
Forgiveness feels stiff
It still has to be worn in
Drip
Drop
I can’t take this anymore
Drip
Drop
Disappointment sears my heart
Drip
Drop
I feel like I’m dying
Drip
Drop
Then my heart finally stops
