Poetry--Shattered Heart

Updated on July 13, 2012

About

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!!

I took this picture at night while camping.

Shattered Heart

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.

      A very good poem considering the time you took to write it. I too write very quickly and I don't quite understand why? It was amazing to read.......

      I love your poem. Very well thought out and magical. To the writer of Birdie, Birdie, a poem is from the heart it does not matter how simple or complex, it just matter that you write it.

      Patty, I'm with Billybuc. You're making the rest of us look bad. Please consider taking down a notch for the rest of us mortals. Already, I have aborted the poem I was going to finish and submit. Here is the first line, which had taken me 45 minutes to write:

      Birdie, birdie, in the sky,

      I'm just glad cows don't fly.

      I know. It sounds like something you have heard before, which is why it took me only 45 minutes to creatively replace "pigs' with "cows" to make it more modern nouvou noir french thingie.

      Excuse me! Did you say 45 minutes to write this? OMG! it would take me 45 days to write this! Patty, you are making the rest of us look bad; you are kicking quality stuff out in a matter of minutes. It takes me three to four hours to write one of my hubs! HubPages better plan on giving your some awards soon. You have my vote as Best New Hubber!
