Should I Stay or Should I Go

Silvana Dureny 1976 (New Jersey)

A heart is torn damaged by emotions
Trying to move on but suffering deep within the body penetrating the vessels
A mind confused
This is a tragedy
torn and bleeding
Torn within the very depth of the soul
Still in love but damaged by association
A heart is overturned by just under 3 decades
Life's up and down it was us two
Where do i go when I need you
Who will hold me when all I knew was you
17 and learning what love is
Even the good in me has lost
I cry even when I think I am happy
I suffer even when I see the next chapter
I  am lost even when I need just laughter
I am lost because I have moved forward but still think of you
Emotionally I am torn by a feeling of death upon me
I am digging deeper scared that I won't come back
Emotionally I am torn please grant me the very strength I need to live on within me
Send me a sign whether this is my time
Should I stay or should I go
