' Bleeding Hearts' - Poem by Shirley Morgan

My heart bled when you left me for a younger woman. It's really funny how life unfolds. I have heard plenty of sermons preached. ' Don't marry for looks'.
When you get older, your hair falls out, your teeth falls out, and you will fall out.
He did'nt mention about that young hussy.
Yea, the one who likes to dance on a pole.
My heart has fallen out but man looks at the outer appearance but, God looks at the heart and in time will heal the bleeding heart.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

My heart bled when you left me for a younger woman.
It's really funny how life unfolds.
I have heard plenty of sermons preached.
And the preacher would say,
'Don't marry for looks'
When you get older, your hair falls out, your teeth falls out, and you will fall out.
He did'nt mention about that young hussy. Yea, the one who likes to dance on a pole.
My heart has fallen out but man looks at the outer appearance but, God
looks at the heart and in time will heal the bleeding heart.

    Falling in love based on the extrinsic qualities is just vain glorification of beauty. A good poem, well articulated and nicely penned. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply
