Love is elusive unless it is beckoned to come to you by another who loves

Three poems on the effort to find love and the agony of it's loss.

The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter

The heart is a lonely hunter,
in the wee hours 
of it's mournings, 
its soul is a scout 
always searching,
for the sweet meet of love.

Each heart's lonely 
endless litany 
of lub, dub, lub, dub,
sounds much like 
some ancient war drum
echoing hollow 
in an empty bed.

One can hear 
their own swallow
as tears are digested
on the corner of 
Third and forlorn
in a small 
apartment for one.

The heart needs 
the fullness
of another's catch,
the shared cacophony
of stereo beats pressed tight
against taut skin.

So it sits like a 
vacant lodge
welcoming other hearts 
who are on the prowl.

But the path to it is treacherous,
for it has set itself up for a fall,
and it has taken 
many wrong trails before.

Nevertheless it is open season,

for any and all dears.

Secondhand Soul

I'm not broken, 
I am simply a badly 
restored vessel
once shattered 
by love....
reglued by 
the necessities
to just go on
but my soul retains
slight cracks
where it once 
was whole    
I am no longer 
able to 
hold the tears in,
since the flower
I once held
was removed.

A Chance To Vent

Excerpts from 
the wailings of a 
teenaged girl
"Vengeance is mine 
saith the Lord,"
But I'll dare 
pre-empting God,
with some unholy 
wrath upon
your despicable, 
cheating head.

Those Lips 
that I kissed 
hitchhiking across 
like pale maggots 
they now disgust me.

I'll post your shaming, 
on my very 
public school blog,
and its 367 
girls readers
will avoid you 
at all costs.

Even if the 
only Prom date 
left available is Ernie 
the pimply faced,
fart king of 
my "NotSo High 
School" anymore!!
