Poor heart: A poem


My heart has weathered many a blast


Whither it directs, thither follows body and spirit


Against my day, pain and misery cast


Thus shall I live, thus endure


Till a fatal storm shall finally relieve it


Torn to pieces


Tortured oft by guilt, oft by longing


A sweet moment too elapses


Right and wrong, twixt, thronging


Hours wrought with uncertainty and irresolution


With memories that wring the depths of my nature


I find nor bliss, nor cure or solution


When the tempests subside, to emerge, a weaker creature

Beautiful poem. It made me wonder whether my heart would have been worn by Joy alone; had there not been any pain.

Sharon, your poetic talents knows no bounds. That was so beautiful; my heart too has weathered many a storm too recently, but I too shall live on and endure. Absolutely fantastic. Voted up etc.
