Aching Heart

It’s hard to control

An aching heart.

 

It’s hard to control

When it’s like a lion

Beating at its cage,

Raging against the bars

Trying to reach out

For what seems so far

Out of reach.

 

It’s hard to control

When it’s like a lone bat

That dwells in the darkness

All alone

With nothing else there,

With the only sound

Being a continual drip

That grates on its sanity.

 

It’s hard to control

When it’s like a lone wolf

Stranded

Out in the middle of nowhere.

It’s starving for food

And dying of thirst.

All it wants

Is to find its pack

To get its nutrition,

To be strong again.

 

It’s hard to control

An aching heart,

And to ignore the pain

That comes from within.

It’s hard to control

An aching heart,

When all it wants

Is a remedy

For the pain.
