Description of a heavy heart.

When you have to
Roll out of bed cause
Sitting up is just too hard;
Hold the wall as you walk
Down the hallway cause
You can't stand straight,
That is when you know
You have a heavy heart.

When you try to breathe in
And you're gasping for air;
When you just can't eat cause
It sticks in your throat,
Not that it tasted like much
More than cardboard;
That is when you know
You have a heavy heart.

When you drive down the road
With your head held up on your hand;
And your head tilted back
Resting on the glass.
Noone is watching but
You still drive slow,
That is when you know
You have a heavy heart.

When you can't sit still
But you can't get going;
The tv is on, but you aren't watching.
When you get in car
With no place to go but you
Just don't care;
That is when you know
You have a heavy heart.

When a tear falls from your eyes
And you don't move to wipe it away;
When you have to start
Reminding yourself to breathe.
When your stomach is in knots
And your chest just aches,
That is when you know
You have a heavy heart.

When the sound of a voice
Is enough to make you cringe,
And the touch of a hand
Can make you break down and cry;
The words of a friend will
Fall deaf on your ears, and
That is when you know
You have a heavy heart.

When you lay down at night
And pull the covers up, but
You feel like you're sinking
Straight down to the floor;
And nothing can stop
Your fall.
That is when you know
You have a heavy heart.

When the sound of your laugh
Falls flat on your ears,
And a smile on your face
Never reaches your eyes.
When you stare in the mirror, and
Just can't seem to find yourself,
That is when you know
You have a heavy heart.
