The Blackened Heart

 

I am tired of the blackened dreams

As my bleeding heart, silently screams

Silence as cold as the black of, night

Gone forever, love from my sight

 

Shivering winds send chills to the bones

As the heart softly and gently, moans

Lay down heart and rest in the ashes

For brokenhearted pain certainly passes

 

Rest weary mind and look for tomorrow

As the passing day eases the sorrow

Hope to live again out in the warm sun

Fearing love, no more for what was done

 

Heal the wounds that cut so you deep

Seek out that one that you shall keep

When walls fall down around the soul

And brings the heart in from the cold

Thanks Docmo...Some experiences shouldn't be experienced. But, alas, a shattered heart is unescapable to us all.

Thnk Kim Lynn...I love doing my own artwork for my work. It takes longer than simply writing and posting any of my work but I enjoy doing the art.

Hi Cracknutcase, This was my favorite line within the poem,"Rest weary mind and look for tomorrow...As the passing day eases the sorrow".

That thought alone has helped me through several disappointments and heartaches.

@Shyla, you can love, just so you know.

I cannot believe the 2 comments-one really long one aren't here-broken writer hub, unless I fell asleep as usually on my laptop and posted them to some horror site-when they were from the heart, don't think you denied them as I would have been told so and since I can't find them in what clearly displays an organized and anything short of scattered hubtivity, I think, I may have even dreamt it? neh?

Bottom line this was also beautiful and this too brings me home to a hub very difficult to write but relative all the same

Thanks MM

"Hope to live again out in the warm sun"

Makes me want to go to the beach

"When walls fall down around the soul

And brings the heart in from the cold"

Very nice
