Heather Burns


Between Two Hearts - Poem by Heather Burns

Tucked away in the
secret chambers of
of two hearts

a love never to be
revealed

to speak about is
forbidden
the pain too great

between two hearts
a love story

the flame continues
to glow
lasting a lifetime.

    Everyone harbors a sacred flame of love, protected at all costs it is an eternal flame that gives light and warmth to a scared heart that has healed but has never forgotten. (Report) Reply

    you are maestro of words.
    this is a deep longing, tucked away in darkest recess of ones soul.
    as usual you have produced a piece of perfection.
