Heart beats


can you see the heart?

under cover of the moon
     round beauty up above
an angel works her magic
     special potions, lotions?
waves her wand
     glimmering, shiny stick

family torn apart by lies
     fixed

separated lovers, now a pair
     hands held, eyes adore
mistakes placed in a box
     ugly, brown cardboard
buried deep under clay and rocks
     worms do your work, decay the hurt

if only life could be so simple
     letters strung together
snatch away the damage done
     agony false syllables create
choose wisely, protect our hearts
     stay strong, tender holder life's memories

  1. what a miracle it would be to see families come back together...sometimes it is as simple as learning how to communicate with each other....saw another of my old kids yesterday and his story isnt great but he is learning...

  2. Sometimes it would take angels to mend the hurts....Merry Christmas.

  3. It's often family that hurts us the most; we love them the most also. Your lovely poem is a reminder that we should never forget to 'talk' things through.

  8. Strong images move through this piece. The last stanza is my favorite with its words and syllables. Well done, Robyn!

  9. Love this. Especially drawn to this line:
    "worms do your work, decay the hurt"

  10. Family can be so painful, especially at this time of year. Healing is a slow process. Your angel must be very busy.

  11. I like where you took the wordle words, especially "mistakes placed in a box". If only it were that easy.
