Embattled Heart

Updated on December 9, 2012

Love descends

cascading inward

Groping, grasping

Falling freely

spiraling downward

Reaching, clawing

wounded heart


Love fallen

beaten, battered

lies alone

dying, forgotten

gasping inward

pulse is gone

broken heart


Stiring, rising

upward climbing

trying, flying

Always falling

forever rising

never finished

healing heart


Always returning

turning home

coming back

undefeated

undetered

all the pieces

courageous heart

      Hello, this is definitely an emotional expression- a passion some con not express, and you have done a beautiful job here. Thank you.

      Just thought I would stop in again and let you know that I had the idea of "Home" that became a song. If you would like to see the words to that song read my hub, "How My Friends Inspired Me To Write A Song". I find that poets that elaborate on the things that matter most to them.

      This is beautiful. I love the way it tells a story... with a happy ending ( my favorite kind).

      You are a very good writer!

      I swear I could actually hear drum beats in the back ground while reading your poem. Absolutely magical.

      Thank you so much for the kind words, Edlira. I will now wallow in the mud of false humility!

      Your style reminds me a bit of my own. Dare I say how good it is, after saying that? :-)

      Your poetry, Nellieanna, needs no advocate, it has a voice of it's own.

      That was to be a testimony to your excellence! But thank you profusely even if I seemed to be fishing! hehe.

      The complment was recieved. Perhaps, reception simply hesitates comparison from work I so esteem!
