A Stone Heart

One day walking down a dirty road
out of the blue sky a spear darts
I look up and see it heading at me.
I try and run but it follows where I go
it seems I am it's goal it's purpose
with a stone heart what can it gain?

It cannot pierce no matter it's strength
a stone heart is just that a stone heart
no gravitational pull can eradicate ever.
The games up the score settled sadly
the bite of some firefly's deemed deadly
a beating heart turned into hard, cold stone.

If it looks like a heart, beats like a heart then it must be.....ya know   this is powerful reading my friend, and at times I wish that I could turn my heart to stone so as not to feel the pain that often comes but then I wouldn't feel anything else and to miss that would be a shame.  Thank you for sharing your gift with us.

 Hold me for yesterday
Kiss me for tomorrow
But love me for today.

Well, you can wish all you want, Gloria, ain't never gonna happen! You have one of the tenderest hearts I've ever seen!  
Great poem!
