(This poem has absolutley nothing to do with me. I just wrote it because it seemed like a powerful topic and something I could really get into... let me know what y'all think )

The Tears of a Hurting Heart

Nobodyís was there
When I screamed for help
Nobody came
When my heart was crying from inside of myself

Nobody cared
About that five year-old girl
Nobody....
Not one person in this God-forsaken world

I miss them so, so much
I crave like a drug addict for Mommaís cooking and warm hugs
I need daddyís bedtime stories
I ache for his special, sweet cookies

I cried for weeks
Tears would sometimes poor down my blotchy, red cheeks
For no reason at all....
It got to the point where I would just fall down on my knees
Curl up into a ball,
And let the misery consume my forgotten heart
Why, oh why God, did you tear my family apart?

Nobody bothers to ask me whatís wrong anymore
When in the middle of class
Tear, after tear, after tear would slide silently down my face
Like a never-ending rain pour

Nobody bothers anymore
To wonder why my breaths come in shallow gasps
Like there isnít enough air for me to breathe....

They act as if Iím the wallpaper
Nobodyís there
Nobodyís ever here
For me
My own family
Only took me in out of pity
I can tell by the way they look at me

No one can understand the pain that I feel
Itís been two years
And the hurt never heals
The tears
Never, ever stop
My heart is surrounded by a permanent, strangling, merciless knot
It stays hollow, aching, and empty
No one cares about my fears
Fears like how much more family Iíll lose to the streets...
No one cares about me

Always,
   Kai (a.k.a. precious pearls)

Beautifully captured.
