A Poet´s Heart


Last night so cold my dear,
I'd been waitin' you came not to my ear
where were you, my love
gone I was shocked, prayed to God above

deepest shocked, my ratio blocked,
my aspirations almost locked
an attack on my mental part
so sad realizing you have from the very start
always a very weak heart

my heart begins to speak and redeems
all the lies for the good truth, it seems
you've understood the conditions
also every awful regulations

Last night I had it so cold my dear,
I'd been waitin' but you did not appear

    It is a poetic awakening. You suggest that it's time to stop waiting for a false happiness to come galloping over the next horizon. You need more explanations now, knowing that there aren't always fairy tale endings. A sense of serenity is born of acceptance.Wonderful poem. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
