Fractured Heart 2












Spare a kind word for

the fractured heart,

ever to be an open wound,

that seeps the past, and

runs to soft and crumble

the mortar of each new love;


that trickles the invisible,

the forlorn, from cold skin,

its plume left to its want

until few grains remain;


to build another tower

of shadows, on sands

doomed to fall by the

slow shift of fantasy.

Very haunting, does a broken heart ever truly heal?

Ya got my thoughts, it's about, the one great love, that is ever sort, and if we lose it how it can never be replaced and all that come after are elevated in mind as a replacement, which they're not and so must disappoint and collapse. (I think!)

Unnervingly good. Like failed love it has a haunting attraction.

That's one that rewards multiple readings. Love as impermanent fantasy. Hmm
