Threadbare Hearts

The thread of our love
is thick
And yet unwoven
You have used it
Once to many
as a sheild against the forces
And as the cold
rips and tears
Our hearts
become threadbare
As you rest your head
Upon the well-used sheet
there is an impression
left by your soul
A feeling
The feeling of what we once were,
is imprisoned
in the threads of our hearts
as each thread is worn
A heartstring is torn
I am left threadbare
imprisoned in the fine unravelings
of what is left

I liked this allot. I must say though,it is short. It would be better if it was long. More a complete emotion that an unfinished song.

I like the poem alot! But I have to make one little critque (mainly because I feel I have to leave a little constructive critism, because it is the only way we all get better) I would have liked to see it a little longer, with a little more transition, I feel then ending just pops up! Other than it is great, and that is a minor little thing. Check out some of my other poems!
