Any help with my writing would be great because sometimes I have no idea what I'm doing. :)

One moment told in lopsided thoughts

Sickening, shivering, everything running down my spine,
Just one word, one truth clattering through my mind,
It courses through, makes my head explode,
Thoughts made impossible,
Realities made untrue,
Paralyze me with something forgotten,
So quick, so soon,
Why must you leave?
Questioning all that we wanted,
Tongue tying in knots,
The lump in my throat expanding,
Fake smile pulling me along,
Joking with you,
Can’t let any pain you caused come through,
It’s over and gone,
But you couldn’t stop there though, could you?
Stomping and grinding any hope beneath those dark black shining army boots,
That pause vibrates through the air,
Pointless apologies hanging there,
The coerced little crinkle going through the back of my eyes,
As my heart beats a tiny death,
A laugh and smile hide this deep secret,
You’re so clueless,
You’ll never know,
Never know what that did to me.

    Did my heart just get hit by a rampaging moose or are you that good at conveying emotion? I would say it’s the latter.... geez, this brings back so many sad times... In a beautiful way... <3

    I LOVED this! Just, stunning piece, lovely vocabulary, and the concept is executed perfectly! It truly feels like a rush of thoughts in someone's mind all pertaining to a single moment. I love the line "as my heart beats a tiny death" and those last two lines are *chef's kiss*. Wonderful writing!
