Burnt Out Heart

Ill conceived perceptions
far away
from true.

This is not mine
It belongs
to you.

Untouchable cold.

The vision
of my heart
you hold.

Burn me,
Broken down.

Your ice cold heart

How you see me is wrong.

Don’t look at me judge me on how you are. I invite you to know my heart

It is then you will learn the difference between your ill conceived perceptions and the truth.

There is power in being able to express something emotive through art and let it go, I find it’s this that keeps me engaged in using art to grow and heal…

    Brilliant poetry, the structure suits the mood so well- what you say is very true and stated in a deeply thought and felt way – this is very much “my” kind of poetry and is therefore a favorite with me

  • Thank you so much George. I enjoyed doing this piece. Hope you are well.

    yes its all to human … transfere ideas and feelings on to others
    its the self obsessed and the self righteous approach to understanding
    which we are probably all guilty of from time to time
    i do like the way you explore the emotional and pyschological grey areas

  • It seems an inherent thing with me charliethetramp… cant help it. Thank you so much for coming over here again and having time to view :)

    Very well written. There is a lot more to a person than what shows on the outside. All you have to do is take a look at the heart. I saw the image that went with this and it was beautifully done.
    An instant favorite.

  • Thank you so much Iris a wonderful comment here, your time and consideration is much appreciated, :)
