Broken Heart - Poem by Kaila George

The leaves rustled
In the cold breeze
Around the stillness
Of the old Haunted House

The moonlight shone down
Sending strays of shadows
Upon the ground

The silent footsteps
Of the distant past
Echoed through the night

And as I glanced up
At the shattered windows
There was a luminous
Pale light reflecting
Off the glass

Blinking once
Blinking twice
It just vanished
From my sight

I have heard story's of old
Of a long lost soul
Who awaits for
Her one true love

The story goes
Of a young girl blind
Raised in the house of old

And she meets
A boy who taught her love
And they vowed to be
Together as one

But a war was at hand
And a letter did come
Stating he must defend
His homeland

So with a heavy heart
He vowed to return
As soon as the
War was done

The day came around
When in uniform he wore
To give a token
To his one true love

He held in his hand
Two pieces of gold
Of a heart broken in two

This piece is mine
And this piece is yours
Once returned
Will be together as one

So softly he kissed
Upon her lips
A found farewell
To true love

So there she sat
Day after day
Waiting for lost
Love to return

But alas he died
In a foreign land
And grasped in his hand
Was his piece of gold?
That they pried from his hand
To send to his loved ones at home
But alas it never reached home

Upon the news
Of the young mans death
She cried in vain and clasps to her chest
The pendant of gold still around her neck
And dies of broken heart in two

Tears of sorrow
Cascade down my cheeks
And glancing up
At the old haunted house
I see her face
Glisten with tears

As she sits
And waits for
Her one true love
To return safely home
To her arms

Shaking my head
I move away in pain
When will this haunting
Ever end

    A truly heartfelt somber read, the storyline was captivating and truly romantic story of lost love, bittersweet as it reminds me of the story of Abelard and Heloise two people hopelessly infatuated that when they separate one cannot move on. Truly lovely (Report) Reply
