Love Song of a Lonely Heart

My heart is not for stirring dear

My heart is dead 

Not a single longing beat you'll hear

So I plead please carefully tread

 

I wonder of an ancient time 

With wildish willing easy open heart 

A place where love could bind

Of secret picnics and lovers' start

 

I wonder of the darkened days

With empty soul, keen to please

A submissive role in reckless plays

We turned me into love's disease

 

And so was born sadness 

In place of love

Endless emptiness

In place of belief in love

 

I have been told too often

Love is not for me

I am too scarred too rotten

Soulful sacred love cannot reside in me

 

I locked my heavy beating heart in a cage

I threw away the key

The cell slowly quashed that pounding rage

 

Love is not for me!

    I’m not sure how to react to this poem.
    Should I feel pity?
    Your words sound so certain.
    No remorse, no looking back.
    You won’t always feel this way.
    Or perhaps you will!
    Nice write.

    Oh no not pity.

    I would never wish to envoke that!

    Thanks for reading

    Wonderful poem! Guess it’s conflicting whether to be lonely or in love but both come with pain in my opinion

    • sylviasearcher

      Thanks. Life is full of conflicts I guess.

      I suppose in the end there is nothing.

      I guess that's how I feel it has ended.

      A heart so eager unable to feel in the end.

        I can completely relate, trying to find love but it’s just disappointments so much that it turns you into this some sort of emotionless person who doesn’t want to be loved or love any more!

        But maybe the heart is and has been loved. Just not how it needed. Toxic love burns hope more than no love at all 🖤

        Great Poem! Sylvia
        enjoyed reading it!
        I can attempted to understand this poem from different perspectives but I would rather enjoy the intensity of its emotion in its full potential!
        Blessings!
