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 of 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

Oh so emotional!  It is truly a gift to find a new love after the heart has been broken.  Great poem!
