beaten heart

Loves love embrace me now

take this beaten heart

bring me joy that flourish in the morn

healing tears to soothe my grief

memories to keep


I look across the sky

blazened trail of wizened clouds

deep in thought, sometimes I cry

who lives, who dies you wonder why

what happens now?


Shadows gently waft along

silent in the minds meadow

Loves vines twist and grow

mine are bent and gnarly
