Poem — Carry my heart

Carry my heart
won’t you please?
Blackened by rejection
and heartache.
Burdens are heavily laden
as carrying a sleeping child.

Depression brings tear drops
Dried by gale force winds
My soul resides in Hell.

Trying to break through
these chains. God? Are
you listening?
Let me feel balanced
A land where anguish
is amiss.

I’ll rest on new clouds
Wanting to fly away.
Like sparrows take flight
I look at the sky
the color’s bright
I can see the sun as it
kisses the horizon

My hope restored.
