Heart

Write to him your heart on a sleeve
The beat of naive disbelief
Unreturned and unrequited,
Lover lost and a heart slighted

The broken pieces he’ll receive
Write to him your heart on a sleeve
Whether scattered shards or a whole
Unspoken emptiness of soul.

Never mind the death in your eyes
The truth you have spared for disguise,
Write to him your heart on a sleeve
Because your heart can still deceive.

The end in sight for broken hearts
Forget of the disjointed parts,
Find new heart for you to receive,
Write to him your heart on a sleeve.

 

Poem #20 is a quatern. I decided to make it harder for myself by giving it a rhyme scheme… albeit a pretty simple one.
