💔

Drifting away into numbness

Hear my cry

Heed my plea

Save me

Before it’s too late

I weep for the girl that was

Smiling and ever happy

I wish not to be stuck

Smiling in pain

Let my tears flow

Before they turn red

Hear my cry

Heed my plea

Drowning

Clutching to all straws

Fading away

Into an emotionless pit

Listen to my heart

Forget my words

I’ll say I’m fine

When I’m anything but

Hold me tight

Help me fight

My demons taking the best of me

Hear my cry

Heed my plea

I’m lost

I’m wandering

Like a ghost

Haunting nothing but myself

Nightmares merging in to my reality

Hear my cry

Heed my plea

Aid me before it’s too late

Yemen, my Heart.

I tremble as I write

My mind fresh with pictures and headlines

Of a country plagued by war

Haunted by famine

Children dropping by the hour

Malnourished and diseased

World’s worst humanitarian crisis

My heart weeps for my Yemen

3 years of bombs and diseases

And the world watching on

As Yemen falls

I weep for my people

Families forced into eating leaves

I lack words for what I see

All I know is we have failed Yemen

Yemen, my Heart.
