Ruptured | Poem by Wordsmithpraise

Here’s a poem from me titled, “Ruptured


Little did she know,
the tears she shed every night
ruptured a hole in her heart;
till pain gnawed the edges of her soul.

© W. S. Praise


I was inspired to write this after talking to a friend(name withheld), who had been weeping over a past-failed relationship.
