*Stony, So What?

You tell me
Your heart that loves me
Is pure as dew water;
You tell me
You scribe my name,
There on every page,
Every new chapter

All scripts,
Written on water,
Melt away,
As soon as they enter,
Be they rich sweet or loving;
That really doesn't matter

You accuse me
A man of heart of stony walls;
I agree,
I hold no pretensions
Against your silly words;
They only amuse

You listen;
I engrave you red
On my solid heart;
That would last,
Won't fade away;
My heart stony;
So what?

    Yes! so what? for that's how you love...engraving red on a dry stone. I loved your last stanza, but could it be your heart of stone be melted by an angelic and divine love? ...romantic in a very sense, showed only the true you... Maestro a 10 for i always love your composition...not flowery, just a straight to the point and always making sense. (Report) Reply

    I'm sure that poetry is running deep within you and not in the least superficial as that I have been finding in many writes of others here. Your truthful comparisons are excellent to muse over and I am sure that I may want to read your entire work. Thank you for the beauty of your thoughts. arya (Report) Reply

poet Ambrose Bierce

by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
