Story #3 - The Ache

There is an ache inside my heart, one filled with loneliness and fear. There is an ache inside my head, one filled with stress and thoughts. There is a voice inside my head, telling me I should be dead. There is a voice inside my heart, telling me I should fall apart.

There is an ache inside my heart, one filled with love and care. There is an ache inside my head, one filled with dreams and words. There is a voice inside my head, telling me it's going to be fine. There is a voice inside my heart, telling me they will always be there.

There is an ache inside my heart, filled with sadness and despair. There is an ache inside my head, filled to the brim with thoughts of death. There is a voice inside my head, screaming to be dead. There is a voice inside my heart, screaming to breakdown and cry.

There is an ache inside my heart, one filled with happiness. There is an ache inside my head, one filled with thoughts of life. There is a voice inside my head, screaming to live instead. There is a voice inside my heart, screaming to stay strong.

Please take this all away, for I don't want to live, but I have to for all of them. I will welcome death with open arms and embrace it as I fall apart, but a voice tells me not to give up just yet.
