#PBF Poetry Battle Friday’s Winner

Steph’s winning poem on the topic: HEARTACHE

Image provided by author

No escaping me, I’m dying — inside
it’s like a thousand sighing
beasts are clawing, gnawing teeth
sanity, it fades beneath the constant
wail of silent lies, chalkboard nails
and screeching cries disguised
as wreckage, no repair —
ache upon heartache,
despair
