My Heart Hurts

My heart hurts.

Discontentment reigns.

I'm caught up in these chains.

Weary of these pains.

Knowing what remains

From using my brains.

It courses through my veins.

My heart hurts.

I want this to be through.

Who can I appeal to?

I feel so untrue

To myself, so new.

I'm downright blue.

My heart hurts.

I want someone to love me.

So lonely.

Life has no guarantee.

It has an admission fee.

Sometimes it's your chance to be happy.

Unhappiness to a tolerable degree.

And still no one hears my plea:

I just want to be free.

My heart hurts.
