your angry words
lashed out, unfairly
punctuated by your open hand
and it wouldn't have been the first time
nor even the next
but ultimately a piece of me died
I buried it painstakingly.
with each new piece
I carved another letter on the gravestone
"in memory of my heart"
and now this day, my eyes look
at your hands clenched in frustration,
your arms hanging weakly at your sides
and I smile with sad satisfaction
for my heart is buried safely
just out of reach.



 remember this...nobody has an unbreakable heart

ok, how about an early supper @ the Savoy...say about 7pm?...No need to dress for it...ooops, well, I mean dress but not dress...hmmm...you know what I mean...  But I warn you the sandwiches are really, really cute...LOL...I'm only trying to make you smile...My ex and I stayed once for the weekend and just as the doorman was about to open the door his heel fell off his shoe...you can just picture it, I'm laughing so much I make the doorman laugh, now HE was a real cutie...hmmm

Such incredible sadness written so beautifully!!! That heart is simply resting, dear friend... waiting for someone who will appreciate its beauty and treat it as the treasure it is!

I have felt this way many times.  I can truly relate to your pain...((HUGS))  Hopefully, one day your heart with find new life as mine has - it get's real rough trying to live without one after awhile.

Iloveit...This is a great poem but it sounds like your going through a hard time....i think buring your heart is just a temporary fix...the pain will unevitable come back if you dont let go of it...great job!!

Wishing that you will find the one that will raise your heart from the dead. . . a dead heart knows nothing, feels nothing. . .

Your heart has not yet died my friend. . .
