Patiently


when a heart
   made of stone
           falls
              it breaks

when a heart
   encased in iron
           rushes
           it falls
              it breaks

when a heart

  bound in pain

    is released
  
       it rushes
  
         it falls

            it breaks

yet if a love

is developed over time

nurtured

patiently-

a heart
   frozen in ice
     is thawed
       it melts
         into the arms
           of your awaiting
              dreaming

My God, Christopher, you never cease to amaze me with your beautiful words, intriguing thoughts or romantic prose.  There are not enough words in the english language to compliment you.  I have a few favourite poets here, and it's safe to say that you are now one of them. The last verse is simply perfect and beautiful! I wish you the best and truly hope that you find the woman of your dreams, because you deserve it!  

Take care,
Melissa Honeybee

Excellent advice indeed, and most assuredly a prize worth the wait ...  

This assumes, however, that one has the slightest inkling whatsoever that one's patience is not a vain endeavor ...

Sigh ... ever the cynic ...

--Me


 Full fathom five thy father lies,
Of his bones are coral made,
Those are pearls that were his eyes;
Nothing of him that doth fade
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange...


--William Shakespeare, from The Tempest

Chris, this is a beautiful piece of work, and all you wrote is true. Great job.
