People hold so much pain, grief, and heartache withing their hearts, yet it's so easy to hide it all

It’s funny, isn’t it?

How much pain you can hold within.

The shame and guilt from mistakes

That continue to haunt you  

In dreams and every waking moment,

Those words that slipped out in heated arguments

Still play on repeat in your head,

The burden of knowing you let them down

Threatening to crush you.

And the nagging demons inside

Who tell you you were never good enough,

That you never will be.

A heart the size of a fist

Can bear the crushing weight of heartbreak

And it’s funnier still

How no one can see

All that your heart holds.
