A Heart Thief

Updated on July 14, 2011

Is love really beautiful or

Does it carry the woes of one’s heart tears?

Holding back from a broken heart fears

A broken heart is hard to mend

Always wondering if you have to defend

What your true emotions reflect

Having to pick and choose and select

A shattered heart, left to pick up

Piece by piece placing them in its death cup

Trying to glue the pieces back together

But never finding the sun in today’s weather

When you go to reach for the last piece

It’s nowhere to be found please call the police

A thief was spotted but cannot be found

He left when he saw me reaching for the ground

He took it a piece of my heart and left a hole

The night I fell in love and he stole

It from me he ran without thinking

How it would make feel when he left me sinking

In my own bath of tears that ran deep

Leaving me to stand on this rubbish heap

Will I ever find my missing piece that was taken?

Or will always live in a life of love forsaken

I call upon the heavens atmosphere

And kneel to the highest element I dear

Will I find the piece to my puzzle?

Or will I forever hold my heart in a muzzle

      When hearts are broken more than once, it tends to remain solo.....

      Such a beautiful write and I'm wondering if maybe we all don't have a heart missing a few pieces.

      I believe love IS really beautiful. But for some of us it is very slow to arrive. sigh

      Bella, I had an encounter years ago that left a hole where my heart was supposed to be. I was devastated. I know what it feels like to wonder if it makes sense to give your heart to any one ever again!

      Cardia, I am sorry to hear that opening up the door way to love again is a hard thing to do.

      Always, Yes why is that why does it happen so fast to fall in love but so long to heal the heart that has been broken.

      Bella, I really believe when you love someone, you never really stop, you may not like that person, but the love is there. You may put it so far back in your psyche but it's still in your heart. This makes me feel sad just thinking about it.....Hurry up!! Write something funny.

      You are still writing great poetry, and very heartfelt, bella. I came by to say 'hello'. Keep up the good work and hang in there. You are still young and the right man will come along for you. : )

      Bella Bella Bella Bella ..... (like Marlon Brando in A Streetcar named Desire) ...in your new profile photo that is the sexiest pair of glasses I've ever seen in my entire life.

      And this is such an evocative and wonderful title - I wish I had written it. And the words which followed ripped the heart right out of me - you are a poet's poet -and I have missed you - how is your life and is everything well with you? Good to see you once again and sending warm wishes and good energy from lake erie time ontario canada 9:32pm while listening to the Pogues
