Writing Prompt 4

Today I would like to explore something that has been bugging me for a minute. We have all been in situations where we have had our heart broken in some way, shape, or form. Whether it was that shiny bike you never got as a kid or the loss of someone dear to you. Whatever your heartache may be, it's time to let it flow into words. Keeping feelings bottled up inside can be very detrimental to your mental health. Let your feelings and emotions come alive through your writing so that you may feel more at peace with said situation!

I Am Here

Where am I?
Swinging to and fro
through the hoops
you have conditioned me to adapt;
to the change you desire most.

Where am I?
On the short train
to hell
fire blazing on my trail
as I consider your final destiny.

Where am I?
Holding onto nothing
in the air
that suffocates me
and stifles my very words;
               words you don't want to hear.

Where am I?
Inside a tiny jar
struggling to climb up
to the rim-
just to be shoved back to the base again.

Where am I?
Somewhere I never hoped to be
deep inside your head
yet colored and painted red for hate.
You hate me and that's okay.

Where am I?
Facing such confusion
anger and pain-
time for seclusion to set up camp
and stalk my brain.

Where am I?
Leaving comforts
and joy in the wind
as I step out
to be new again.

Where am I?
Going down the hill
of hope faster than
a bullet can make
one choke.

I am everywhere
you look with those
vacant eyes-
try, try, try
to move on
with this opportunity to be simply

I am here.
