This is my rendition of a shattered heart and was a challenge to write. This took me 45 mins.
Thank-you for taking the time to read this, please feel free to comment!!
Scattered amongst the ashes of the past,
stifling memories forever to last.
Shattered, broken, eternally lost,
no peace, no cure, no matter the cost.
Skeletons hidden dance the grave,
yet nothing left to try and save.
Blazing sun sheds no light,
darkness succumbs without a fight.
Taunted by faded dreams,
now thrashing down the river's streams.
The once soft rose petals, now dried and tattered,
there is nothing left that can be battered.
Tossed, thrown in a sea of shame
yet, no one there left to blame.
The shattered heart has heard the lies
strewn over yielding cries.
Tears shed now gone dry,
no question asked, not even a why.
Shattered heart amongst the ashes now lay,
The reaper has come to collect his pay.
Gone forever in the sea of life,
never again the need to deal with strife.
Now at peace eternally broken,
Never again another word spoken.
