Where Do Lonely Hearts Go?
~*Marge Tindal*~



Where do lonely hearts go
to find a place to break?
Show me how to get there
before it is too late.

Not wanting to be seen
by happy faces when I cry.
Where do lonely hearts go
to unload their lonely sigh?

It must be by the seashore
where the waves are always breaking.
Carried by the undertow
hearts drowning in the aching.

No lifeguard on patrol,
no rescue overhead.
Where do lonely hearts go
when love is surely dead?

Along the water's edge,
sandcastles in the sand,
dashed and smashed
by a scorned lovers hand.

Where do lonely hearts go?
I wish I didn't have to know.
Giving up to sure surrender,
where do breaking hearts go?

Broken into a thousand pieces,
floating out to sea
the tide turns and brings
my broken heart back to me.

Like broken shells I find them
scattered round my feet.
Where do broken hearts go
to end the misery?

Gathered by a new lover
making footprints in the sand,
my broken heart now rests
in another's gentle hand.

You have such a comforting way with words, Marge!
What a great, creative tale of a broken heart's journey.
An above average answer to such a painful question.

Marge, you sure worked your poetic magic with this poem.  And, it has a happy ending which is what every broken heart needs.  Happy endings are out there if only we never stop searching.
Thanks for such a beautiful response.  You honor me by posting a wonderful poem as a follow up to mine.
Your so kind and considerate!
Danny

JanuaryFlowers~
Thank you for the very kind comments.
Perhaps it will reach a heart that needs it.

Danny Holloway~
I believe the same as you do ...
the connection of the minds, heart and souls of writers MUST meet in mid-flight on the thoughts from the pen.
I thank you for the inspiration for this piece as I happen to like it very much.
Your 'thoughts' talked to me.
I'm pleased that you found it to your liking.

From the ocean waves to your heart.

Keep looking, but every now and then,
check the beach for a good-looking
beachcomber picking up pieces of that heart.
Thanks for the read.

Those gentle hands are there for sure.
Thank you for the kindness of your response.

Becki~
Thank you for letting me know you like it.

Yep, I'll just bet they do too.

*~*A very special thanks to Danny Holloway
who sent the inspirational ~spirit~ of his thoughts to my pen, even before I had read his poem.
Now that's a special spirit~.

I think there are a lot of broken hearts around here lately for one reason or another! I think this will touch many!

Marge, another beautiful poem.      Sorry hit that back button in error.  But this truly is deserving of two "beautiful poem" comments.

normally i find the amount of poems dealing with love to be mind-numbing (at best)  but i can undoubtedly say that this one has far surpassed what we see every day, it is a grand work of art.  the emotions are dealt with very well in a true poetic fashion...i dig it yo

Aahhh...the soft and lonely song of the broken hearted.  Forever may our hearts beat as one in perfect harmony realizing,
and captivated by one another's pain.
Like no other place on Earth we are here, learning to live...again.

Thanks for the enjoyable read Ma'am.

Chris
