Heartless


You never told me
to take care
because now I see
your heart was never there.

I met you
and thought to myself
that I could love you, too,
but you only cared about yourself.

I looked for your heart
your soul,
but could find nothing in the start,
but a single lump of coal.

So I looked
and looked
still nothing came,
but a hole of complete darkness
and the thought of me being the blame.

I tried even looking onward;
past this dreadful shrew,
but I was only looking toward
a heart that never grew.

I cannot leave her
I lie to you not
because I know I'm the cure
to this heartless plot.

Then I began
to find a lost cause
because to infect my heart was your plan
I still lie to you not,
but now I lay my head to rest
and my heart begins to rot.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
