How to explain to others how your heart hurts,
to say a piece of my heart is gone,
that tears are the only way to express
unless you want to hear me scream
because I could so easily
scream out my  pain
till my throat would bleed
if it would help others understand
yet how can I hope you would
when I don’t understand the why,
or the suffering, pain, or heart ache
myself, I can only cry.
