Hearts in Movement

By Tony DeLorger © 2013


Quintessential to my thoughts of love,

is so often the blood lost, when things go wrong,

and within my heart I know too well,

when choices wrong the pain of hell.


But abide by love I must, be stoic,

from the lessons learned we alight heroic,

and discern with skill what resides in heart,

rather than take the lies, that some impart.


For in the field of love and life,

whatever is real determines plight,

to savour all that souls can share,

or in cloaked restraint, pretend to care.


Whatever is found with desiring hearts,

can only acquire profound at start,

if open souls searching truth and respect,

accept in heart and in love reflect.


But when hearts fail and in love destroy,

the very hope of a life of joy,

it's hard to persist with this imperfect game,

to find a soul removed from blame.


For we are doomed in flawed deceit,

unwilling to turn, our demons meet,

to not accept the lies we tell,

or forgive those who deceive us, in darkness dwell.



In matters of the heart, it is essential to be who you are right from the beginning. Pretense is the forerunner of failure.

      Tony, this is superb and full of such profound truth when it comes to love, as a façade will never last, but a person who is true and genuine from the start cannot go wrong, even if love does not prevail, but when it does, one will know just how true it is. I really love how you have been adding that extra little sentence at the end there in your hubs of your wise insight you are conveying in your amazing poetry.

      Voted up ++++ and sharing

      Blessings, Faith Reaper

      An actor telling you, you are so right. But sometimes life throws strangers together who have nothing else.
