I have no heart...

I have no heart
but one which bleeds
without remorse or charity.
I have no words
but borrowed ones -
only new each time they're used
then old again and richer for the petty theft
I have no chest to sound or house
such poetry and only
emptiness to mark the echo-glyph -
the sound unformed, intended, formed and
counter formed. Reservation against reach
against withdraw against remorse against against.
I am without. Were time, I'd wait. But not
against the inside straight sequential time
of heartbeats and line breaks. Mine or
otherwise.

You have a very interesting style about your writing!  I like it alot!  One line kind of "wraps" into the next....very interesting!  Or at least, that's how I read it - - um....I have to say I chuckled when I first saw your pic!  You were looking out through the fence, and the very first thought that crossed my mind was "he's in prison!"   ROFLMAO  Thanks for making me feel quite silly!  My mind thought "bars" when my eyes saw "chain-link"......hehehe What a trip.....      Hope to see more from you!

Such an interesting way of looking at the use of words:
'then old again and richer for the petty theft'
I like this - though it seems despairing.

Nice poetry, I checked your website out, as that fence there made me curious too. Nice website, very professional looking. Glad your not in prison! LOL

Kevin: I too like and enjoy your style..

HUGS

 Don't ask me where I'm going, just listen when I'm gone and far away you'll hear me singing softly to the dawn.
