Heavy Heartedness

 

My heart cracked with a thud against the cold, dark pavement

As if bouncing some half-deflated, well-worn ball still leaking air

No amount of alchemy can revive this broken, heaving mass

Nor any mortal attempt give back its now dismembered life

Today stands alone, unadorned with yesterday’s promises

And stripped bare of tomorrow’s stillborn pride

 

Peace
