Poetic Souls*** - Poem by Debora Short

Born of
Gifted
Hearts that
Feel, Give, and care
With an
Incredible and profound
Bliss and wonder,
Elation and joy,
Happiness and pleasure,
Hearts that
Bleed
And become
Life-threatening-ly
Anemic
Hearts that
Seek out
Life’s trills
As well as thrills
And all it amazing
World-ly delights
Hearts that
Love
Beyond the ordinary
Hearts that
Imagine and think
Both in
Character-driven vivid colors
And reality’s stark
Black and white
Hearts that see all
And hearts that
Are
So very needy
That
They sometimes require
Round the clock
Feedings
Hearts that
Are plagued
With memories of
Grief and sad loss,
Heartaches that
Booze and aspirin
Can not chase
Angst and worry,
Pain and sorrow
Misery and woe
Hearts
That
Seek
The magical
Caresses
Of
Wisdom
Hearts
That care
That give
That Love
That Cry
That Smile
That needs hugs
And kisses
Just,
Poetic Souls,
The
Fragile
Players
of
Life
