The Word: Heart

 

When my life was in a shambles

and I was totally in a mess

You’d put your arm around me

and take away my distress, 

 

You’d dried each jewel-like tear

with a tender, loving kiss

but greatest of all, my dear, 

it’s your laughter that I miss.

 

You gave your heart to me,

so peaceful, calm, at rest, 

But how I wish that it could be,

still beating hard within your chest.

 

Now you’ve gone, and I’m alone.

You promised we’d never part.

But your love for me has shown,

I will always have your heart.

What do you see – A Fallen Leaf

6361fe735c1ecb52c6be830e24bc5be6

This poem was written for Helene Vaillant’s ‘What do you see’ picture challenge:

What do you See? May 21/2019

 

 

Like a fallen leaf

lying on the forest floor,

my pride in tatters,

wondering what my future has in store.

Naked in the wilderness,

gnawed by grubs of doubt,

now you left me lying here,

what is this life about?

So charming, you enticed me

but the years revealed the truth,

your hateful lies, my tortured cries,

have robbed me of my youth.

My blind desires may have been

a factor in my fall.

but knowing me for all these years,

how could you be so cruel?

I know I’ll rise above this,

emerge a butterfly from my grief,

but now, I lay discarded here,

like a fallen leaf.
