The hounds at my heels......poem

Updated on April 1, 2014

As I traveled slowly up your path my
hounds follow at my heels
I wondered just what it is that makes a heart
feel the way it feels

As I neared the house they left me
and stood guard at each side of your door
The other tracks in the path say to me
I won't come by no more

I knew it all along yet the
heart moves in a strange and evil way
Like the darkness of moon
in an eclipse mid way through a day

Watch me now trying to decipher seeing
you and him here now
Ah come on now boys we'll walk
the other way for now

The hounds will watch over me
and I over them it seems
As I sit and listen to their howls
in an eclipse of broken dreams

      Could tidy up a bit, but it is a fine poem, a "make you thinker."
