Shattered Heart (Part One)
(The Heartless Poetry Book Vol. One)
Written By Frank Reese
An emptied area where the heart once stood,
Darkness now covers all.
Left is a note, of a story that is countless told before,
Of lessons learned the hardest way.
"Given towards, expecting returns."
A path once taken, now covered in reddish pieces,
Reminders not to take haste towards any given passage.
Dim lights oversee judgment, fog oversee sense,
Governed by one's past memories, it is tough to go forward.
Less is the saying "Time mends all wounds,"
When said Wounds are timeless,
When pain pours like the time clock itself.
The past remains close, while the future makes haste,
So I come to a crossroad,
Mend one's wounds to only reopen them later.
That seems to be the secret curse of life,
As past lessons are ignored,
For present joys, and
For future wounds.....
