This Heart Of Mine

The Lesson Of Loss

 

This heart of mine

still beats

the blood of life

remains flowing

through my

temporal existence

citing new experiences

for growth

 

My brown eyes

still open

at the waking

of dawn

the lonely and lost tears

of existence

still streak down

my quivering face

revealing the pain hidden

of my lost heart

 

This shuttering sigh

in morning’s wake

-the insipid breaths

that tempt the heart

to make

the quaking skies

in prime evenings fate

– the decrepit cries

that urge the heart

to hate

 

My brown eyes

finally close

at the dawn

of passing life

The lost and lonely tear

multiples in birth

dampen the tenacious

skin pliant with pains

moistened grip

 

This heart of mine

still beats

the flowing blood of life

through my life

-fated dread –

to finally learn

the lesson of loss

– to go beyond

possessive love
