My Bleeding Heart

October 20, 2008
By Mary Espaillat, Londonderry, NH

paper rips
and on goes the tape
that mends the wound,

but when my heart breaks,
nothing I know
can ever make it whole again,

and so,
my broken heart
bleeds on

The author's comments:
I am 13 and this is first piece submitted anywhere, ever. (Too shy I suppose...) I am kind of excited to see what happens, especially once I submit more and longer stuff. I would appreciate any comments and ratings both good and bad to help me further develop my writing. Thank You.
