How many more broken hearts?

How many more broken hearts to suffer?
How many more unfulfilled dreams?
Too many tears have been shed
Too many nights lost to crying.
Endless days of faking smiles.
Every moment, waiting with bated breath.

Hope is elusive.
The clouds are dark.
The seas are turbulent.
No more feeling the sun’s rays,
no more bathing under the light of the moon.
The darkness welcomes me.
The heart is lost. A heart chained and scarred.
