Trying to Mend a Broken Heart

Her heart seemed frozen

In a moment of time

From that day

When he went away

From the time when she swore

That no one would break her heart anymore

He came unexpectedly

And just as surprisingly

He began to melt her heart

But love takes time

And she couldn’t find the words

To tell him what she truly felt

And so there were times

When the long silences

Made him wonder

What was on her mind?

He’d been searching

For a love of his own

Having strayed far

From the mountains of Colorado

That was his home

To the shores

Of L.A. and the California sun

When he met her

He knew that it was time

To let love into his heart again

But he had to know

That she’d let him

Take her to the mountains

That beckoned him back home

So they shared their new found love

Passionate moonlit nights

That refreshed both of their souls

But as he spoke to her of love

She remained silent

Still unable to feel free

He began to wonder

If she cared as much for him

Finally the longing for home

Overtook his heart

And he decided that she

Would never return his love

It was only the day

That she found his letter

Telling her that their love

Was not meant to be

That home called to him

And that he was tired of roaming

So he’d search for love

Somewhere else

But he’d never forget

Her lovely face and laughing eyes

It was at that moment

That the ice all melted away

And she realized how wrong she had been

It was then that she knew

She had found a new love

And that now he was going away

She thought fast

And she thought quickly

Grabbing a taxi to the airport

Only to see the plane

But a speck in the sky

She caught the next one

Holding his address

Tight in her hand

She’d never seen mountains

Living by the ocean

Was the only home she had ever known

And when she reached Denver

Everything took her breath away

He had just reached home

With a heart that was heavy

Wondering if he’d ever find the right love again

Wondering if he should forgive

The woman who had struck the fatal blow

Brooding and deep in thought

He watched the sun fade from the sky

Settled on the porch

To wait for the new dawn

That was when the taxi pulled up

And he leapt to his feet

And there she was before him

Just as lovely and precious

As she had seemed to him

He held out his arms

And she held on tight

There were no words needed

Their hearts had both found a home

I love how your poetry tells a full story.

Your characters become real and we share their lives for a little while; feeling what they feel.

Voted up and beautiful.
