Hard Feeings

the taste on my tongue

of bitter words

that could leave you stung


the fire in my heart

of frustrated feelings

that would lead me to fall apart


the thoughts in my head

of loss and fear

that form a choice I dread


the loneliness all around me

of being surrounded by new friends

that give attention for free


the emptiness I truly felt

of a shriveled soul

that left no prayers when I knelt


the hard feelings

of trust

that result only in endings
