The heart bleeds and hides in a corner of darkness...

In a quiet dark corner
full of life’s fluff
and dust…
I saw you laying there
on pristine floorboards
the bleeding heart

pulsating with pain
frustration, hurt and anger….
my mind’s eye shivered
with fear …witnessing
with regret…
the bleeding heart

I wanted to caress you
to speak of the bursting pain
you felt and nod
agreement….to
the bleeding heart

my sweet red lips
remained glued SHUT
damn them to hell!!
“speak now or forever hold your peace "
soflty say I to…..
the bleeding heart

trembling I knelt before you
my clasped hands too weak
and pathetically unskilled
to hold the hurt
of your heart….
the bleeding heart

THE BEAT WAS STRONG
but something was amiss….
a mother knows the signs
chilled to the bone
and no response
what causes this heart to die
the bleeding heart

life’s pain…. sipping
from a cup full of regret
sadness …
pathetic shadows laugh at
the bleeding heart

darkness refused
the knock …..
at the solid door of forgiveness
swept away on a welcome mat
barr one…..
the bleeding heart

sorrow,regret
sadness…
NO PITY says….
the shout of sensibility
for….
the bleeding heart

for she could do no more
but buckle under the weight
and deny….
the bleeding heart

a pulse…..

The heart bleeds and hides in a corner of darkness...
