Stuck In My Heart - Poem by ian muhando

This moment alone,
The thought still new and fresh,
Fulfilling, I must say,
To get frozen in just this moment’s hush,

The laughter I hold back,
All the things still stuck in my heart,
That were yours to take,
The unborn marvelous things I have,

I am tempted to think I’m a jerk,
To have let go when no one else would,
This ‘dating’ thing I suck,
But I still think I had much more to bid,


The thought that today has come,
Am neither freaked nor feel lost,
Staring into this emptiness I am,
That I have lived for this long,

Am a little surprised,
That I don’t miss your absence,
Infatuated and carried.
Was all this just by chance?

The good we shared,
Perfect thing it was,
So clear not marred,
Is what my heart still sees.

    Loss of fascination in bliss of love is well depicted in the poem. Love is a spiritual experience that affects one profoundly, it's whimsical and temperamental, appearing unannounced and may leave without warning, if it's not carefully nurtured at all-time to maintain its bliss. Indeed, it's best to discard the unpleasant moments and hold on to happy ones. Thanks for sharing Ian. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply
