in the darkness a heart beats alone

a poem

My heart beats in the dark

its empty

i wait for morning

silently praying for mercy from my relentless thoughts

silently hoping, hoping, hoping

running with no legs

singing with no voice

hoping you won't come to my mind

i erase your face from my heart

replace it with emptiness

a hole

the gaping hole of your absence bites me with invisable fangs

sleep wont come to this tired body

your face burning through my mind.

Again i can't help but be impressed with the way you have with wordplay. I love how you express the depth of emotion through it.

Just noticeable though the misuse/lack of proper punctuation and some spelling lapses. I believe that we owe it to our readers to give them our best(as far as we can go) and that includes making sure we do some self-editing of our work before we publish it.

You have the talent, no doubt. But if you really are serious (and i believe you are) about writing, i hope you'll consider this as an area for improvement.

Over all, this is worth the read again.
Keep on writing and i'll be reading whenever i can:-)

I cant describe how sad this one made me... This is good for you cause your ''wake up'' intense feelings from your audience! But bad for me cause i tried to ''erase her face from my heart'' and after reading this, you brought it back!
Anyhow, I loved it!!!
