Day 14: Heartache

It’s this heartache
That makes me go deep within myself
Poke holes into wounds
That should’ve been healed by now.

It’s a reminder of what I lack
What I should be chasing
What I should leave behind
Whether to cry
Sink
Feel
Fall into nothingness
Forget
Destroy
No longer care

Or

Re-evaluate
Search
Find
Trust
Keep moving
Set Boundaries

Check ’em out below:
