Crushed (a poem)

Inside your spring blossom
The heart is locked away
Caged up like the songbird
Inside these insidious walls

That far-away gaze tells me
So much about your broken spirit
The night you swallowed the pills
The screaming and crying

There was no denying
You’d reached a breaking point
Sometimes we never return
To the land of the mortals

Instead, we float along deep
In outer space, clinging to the
God we desperately hope exists
But we all know we’re alone here

You still have us, please know that
But that wound in your soul
May never be healed
Things happen in life that crush

Even the bravest ones, and there’s
No sunshine left we can shine
