Glen Hope, PA USA
(I wish I could say my vacation was productive in the poetry sense and although I did much thinking, I only wrote 3 poems the entire time I was gone and I can't even say they are very good...of course I am my worst critic so here goes one)
Donít let my heart hear that word,
fall softly from your lips,
and do not let it give rise
when you are near.
Donít let my ears feel that word
flogged off your tongue
in sharp syllables;
each letter like the crack of a whip.
Donít let your eyes say truths
that I donít wish revealed;
nor my eyes betray me with their tears.
For one brief moment,
I began to believe in dreams once more...
then watched as they shattered
to the ground
with just one simple word.
"Nobody has measured, not even poets, how much the heart can hold" ~Zelda Fitzgerald
