Pieces Of Heart - Poem by Dave Dafes

She was the light in my darkest night
My spur to highest height
My dreams she did revive
That the heavens I did dive
My weary bone she vivify
That I mayst fly

Her smile me it inspired to shine
Her tears me it made whine
Her pains me it ruins
Her fulfilled dreams my gains
Her happiness the happy nest
I did laid. In my task her joy is rest

Her eyes the starry cave
Her hair curls as the ocean’s wave
Her voice the avian flute
Her lips the crimson fruit
Her touch the refreshing morn dew
From a goddess she was hewed a flower of every hue

To her my hymn I sang.
To be excluded of misery’s fang,
On her altar my candles burn.
As at her before my heart churn
Within her arms lies everything dear I hold
Where all my wishes are mold

She was my all but left with all
Her words fed me gall
‘N’ my heart to pieces it broke
With her fingers my pains she stroke
She own my heart but to another her heart she gave
My puffy head burst by the lies of her affectionate rave
Though she is gone, her presence I felt still
Living without her me it made ill
With my heart in pieces my strength did leak
Till all day on my bed I lay weak
Only of her smiles I did think
The flowing tears away I blink

She was the pink of beauty I can’t live without
Haunted by her lovely visage I suffered a deadly bout
Everywhere I go her sweet voice me it did stalked
Her thought my sleep it balked
Of. Till my eyes are bloated with despair
That misery ‘n’ I became a pair

I saw the signs but waved them away
Then my friends I kept at bay
To their warnings I paid no heed
A broken heart I got as meed
Consumed by passion my reasoning it beclouded
Before all her attributes I lauded

A fatal mistake I did make
Giving her my heart. Loving her my dreams it fade
My light she took and gave me night
She plucked me wings ‘n’ from life’s lofty height
I fell. As the mists thaw with the sunrays so did she my spirit melted
Now my heart to tiny pieces she pelted
