A Heart Trade Poem by Elena Sandu

A Heart Trade

Rating: 3.9

Long time ago
A woman tried to trade own heart: ..
My tears, would you please get dry? !
Is there somebody or something
To stop Me, stop my Cry?
Abyss! !
Release my body and my soul! Despair! !
My heart, is not your home:
Go! Disappear! Disintegrate! !
Get Homeless! Hungry! Die! ! !
Aww.. Heart to become a killer? !
Can't! ..
Not even the despair and loneliness..
I know, they're bad..But they are personal
They're mine! ..
No! I don't want anything (or nothing,) die? !
Do search for better word and choice:
What would it be? !
Transformation? ! Naah.. Evolution? ! Ttsst...Change? ! .~hard..
Sell..hmm.. it sounds so bad
.Trade..yes! ! That's it! Trade it! !
I' ll trade my broken lonely crying heart
For anything to anyone...
Who wants it?
A broken lonely crying heart Once!
A broken lonely crying heart Twice! !
A broken...No Offered Price? !
The cheapest thing! A paper clip, a thread, Nothing! !
.. Lonely crying heart...
No one? !
Come on...Can't be that hard!
No problem..I Can be patient..
I'll wait..but please:
Stop time or help me stop my Cry..

And so, the poor woman
couldn't even do a trade..
And you know what?
She had to heal herself.
She did it smartly
By sharing little half torn
And broken little pieces
her soul...
Bits, were put into baked cakes
shared in a small neighborhood
Others were put in flower's seeds
who knows where the wind spread them
But most, were put into warm words
and shared with an entire world...
Her heart grew back and
Nowadays she's found
her dolphin smile

This was an amazing narrative poem! ... I loved it... It has a unique perspective on the broken heart theme - totally your own invention - this poem shows bravery of spirit and determination to regain what every heart wants to claim 'love'... Beautifully done Elena. And I Agree With You... I used to say: 'Words Aren't Priceless, Til You Give Them Away, Until Then, They Are Just Wishful Thoughts Held At Bay'... This Poem Proves That Too, You Gave Us Lovely, Priceless Words From The Heart... MoonBee

I love the chaos, the tears, the tragedy, the story. Beautiful words, just beautiful.

her broken lonely heart was traded, but her soul was elated for she shared something for all the world to see and that was in your poetry. gr888t write
