"Poetry of the Past" Part 4

Updated on February 27, 2018

Written on Nov 17, 2009

"My Heart on my Sleeve"

I wear my heart on my sleeve,
its a burden to me,
I carry with the utmost security,
till I fall in love,
and its all down hill from there.
I drop my guard,
and begin to care.
I drop my heart,
for you to step on,
and I wait for the day when,
you will be gone.
And once you've left,
I pick up the pieces of the heart you shattered,
put it back where it belongs,
like it never even mattered,
because it never did to you,
and it never will,
yet, my heart on my sleeve,
I wear it still.

Written Sep 17, 2009

"A Light in the Darkness"

My blood runs cold.
You leave me where I lie.
In this God forsaken place,
you left me here to die.
As my skin grows pale,
and my tears run dry,
all goes dark.
I shut my eyes.

But I'm under cover,
something other than the night.
On wings he carries me,
and we begin to fly.
The past is forgotten,
the pain, it subsides.
I found a light in the darkness,
the darkness can't hurt me tonight.

"Resillient Heart"

If I could put my heart up on a pedestal,
keep it turned to stone,
then I would be just like you,
then I would be alone.
So far my chest is an empty hole,
only pieces and fragments remain,
of the heart that used to be there,
now dumped down the drain.
Turn the garbage disposal on,
watch as the blades tear and shred,
a heart so broken already,
it barely even bled.
But a heart has a secret ability,
a talent all of its own.
It can heal itself in repetition,
make itself whole.
A secret you would have never known,
had it not been hurt before.
but thats the risk we take
when we open the next door.
We do not determine our fates,
fate is whatever is meant to be.
In the end maybe it all will make sense,
when our mind, body and spirit is free.
But the heart still beats,
still grows inside.
Even when we give up hope,
the heart brings itself back to life.

      and thats the best we can do, put our hearts out there for all to see, its the biggest risk because it leaves us open to getting hurt. wondering will it last this time, or fall apart like the rest but i never gave up and I have a much stronger faith in this one. thanks

      Poems from the past, hearts worn on vestments as a signature of love for lovers who wait and wonder if they will last or be torn from the garment worn with faith.

      Faith in LOVE forever between two lovers, Oh sweet tender thoughts, the nectar sent from the gods from the past to linger with us for awhile and quench our thirst in each others arms forever. It was wonderful to be young once...bravo/ applause...loved these poems from the past..well done. Hugs

      well the novel is a loooooong way off. if i actually take the time to work on it. i always have trouble finishing a story i start, poetry always came easy, i could finish in a few minutes or less, but a novel is a lot harder, and takes time, and thinking, and getting the characters and everything straight. i lose track lol but the ideas come easy, its just how to put em all together that gets me. but when i get it done i will definitely let yall know. thanx!

      I know I know, I haven't been around in so long. I have been busy writing online for magazines or competitions earning money also through Internet Marketing. I'm getting together a collection for 2 books plus writing my first play so I'm up to my eye balls which I love. Hub-pages gets less attention these days sadly.

      The date reminded me of a time I was not able to remember. maybe its the mood painted here that gets to my soul. Hearts so fragile yet with scars so strong. Willing to leap, willing to fall.

      Nice trio. Lets see...

      Forever our sleeves we wear our true heart, for this man, like few, has wings oh so smart, only because he has to impart a heart oh so strong and ever so sharp. It mends itself true and floats as sky blue as our one little heart grow ourselves wings, and to you, my true friend, it ever so sings, "take my hand my sweet friend and together we'll fly, forever in Spring."
