      A Withered Heart

      From Whither my heart lies
      within its dreams
      of nights of enchantments
      and days of romancing

      From Whither my heart dreams lie
      within a world of cozy hopings
      that into the night lost upon
      the rising moon

      And withered, my heart lies
      broken and shattered
      as a mirror on superstition
      and the moon fades into dusk

      The sun rises, and my heart
      lies torn in a myriad of ill shapened pieces
      within the pain of long lost love
      and schemes and unrealistic dreams

      From withered my heart shall grow
      a strength to brush myself off
      into life's precious days of which I sow
      Yet, growing fewer as they pass on

      And I shout to the skies
      leave my heart be, for I only
      have one to give and that one
      was not free

      Then in a haze of misty eyed days
      he walked in like a cozy fire
      and cast upon me to trust again
      and I laid my heart at his desire

      Trusting upon him like a loyal dog
      my eyes full of hope and I left
      the shattered one behind upon
      my breast

      And now from withered my heart
      I lay my throbbing pain
      Risking a new start
      Repaired and untouched by
      that long lost lover

Lovely poetry yet again, the way you write is truly great, and all your poetry is so deep and honest and meaningful .


 With poetry as your weapon - express your iner feelings so all may carry your sorrow, united as one .
