Heart For Sale

Look here at this bargain
Itís sure a super buy!
You wonít find a better deal
No matter how you try!

There have been few owners
She kept it in a shell
Well preserved and shielded
Though not protected well

Please ignore the footprints
Itís been walked upon
Donít let that fact distract you
Itís a steal, so please come on!

Donít mind the imperfections
Whatís a scar or two!
Sure, itís been used and abused
But it could work for you!

Hey, it still has life in it!
Though itís battered and itís torn
And if you wear it, oh, just right
You wonít notice that itís worn

Come and see this heart for sale
Be you rich or poor
Iím sure to make a deal youíll like
She donít need it any more



 I can live with the idea
That we are merely actors
Playing a part
But I do wish
Whoever is writing my script
Would learn to use
A few more Happy Endings

Sound like a poetic personal or a poetic informational to let anyone know what they are getting.  That aside it is a really good(I lack better words right now after taking your challenge) peice.  I love it.

Hootessa and Belle - this is just a suggestion, but maybe you should try offering your heart for rent?  Wait a minute, what have I said???  oops...  *veg*

Ruth...Maybe our problem lies in letting anyone buy our hearts. The person worth sharing it with will never take it but will treasure the time allowed beside it. Please don't jump to conclusions my friend. We are not sure of the real circumstances here. ((hug))

Any price I would pay
for a Heart such as yours,
Where passion and tenderness
forever endures.

This is so well written!  tongue firmly planted in cheek and a bit poignant, too.


Love the line:  "Hey, it still has life in it!"


But, you do still need it, my dear, you do!

The words you cast out like a spell
It does not sit with me so well
Special is that's what you are
You are a nice Lady by far
Who ever treated you that way
To "Hell" with him (Sorry for the hard word)I say
I'm sure the "Undertaker" will be pleased to show him the way
Dear Ruth your poem is nicely linked
But you can do better with the ink
Don't get me wrong you did just fine
The poem, as poem is a divine
The story sad beyond believe
Don't let your heart be stolen by a thief
To preciuos is the heart I pray
Your always in my heart I say
Hugs and Love



 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

Very well written and oh so beautiful!  I loved this...it reminds me of times within myself!  You have a beautiful heart and I doubt it could take very long for it to be snatched up!

 If you love something, set it free, if it comes back to you, its meant to be...

devina...this poem was posted a while back, but is no longer in the Passion's archives because it was maliously deleted by a poet who is no longer on the site several days after it was posted.

Danny...thank you, seems it's not a wanted commidity as of late

suthern...well, maybe the person doing the bartering for me can sell it off quick, seems I don't need it

Scorched...not a personal by any means...thanks  

LJA...rent? I'd rather give it away to someone who truly appreciates it's worth.

Marilyn...thanks hun...it's hard not to jump to conclusions at this point though  

denise...thanks, love you too my friend  

Sea,Corinne, DA and Beri...thank you all  

Helmut...you're such a good friend, thank you

Ruth, Don't be putting that heart on the market yet. There's a demon out there buying them up and reprograming them to see only bad and never seek love. Your heart is overflowing with tons love,and kindness don't sacrifice that for any amount. Keep it safe and sound inside your temple and know that God will heal it's scars.
