Ashes to ashes

Dust to dust

A heart unbroken

Is covered with rust


Whether dream or lie

There go I

Be broken or not

My heart will not rot


It seeks and searches

Pain reverses

It strikes it flails

In darkness it wails


But rust it will be

The color of me

Loving out loud

Alone in a crowd

Love is kind

There are worse things than a rusty heart.
Apparently you need to lower your standards quite a bit and find love with a loser a time or two....Rust don't look half bad after that.
Seriously, though, it is a good poem. ~L

Rust merely means you have fought some wars, won and lost your fair share.
