In A Golden Locket

Favorite Quote:
Some wish to live within the sound of a chapel bell; I wish to run a rescue mission within a yard of hell. -C.T. Studd.

A broken heart spills out in a million pieces


into a golden locket.
Quick, snap it shut.

Inside the pieces flutter about,
resisting to find each other.
Each piece claims a different emotion, feeling, and dream.

Loneliness sits in the corner,
avoiding each pieces path.
Consumed in darkness, and its own torrent of tears.

Hurt and Pain have partnered together in a race to forget the past.
They load on the work, strain, and desire to do it all.
An effort to cover grief with duty;
A shameful attempt to hide it's soul.

But then,

Hope lies still and silent in the middle,
calling up to all pieces.
Wishing, and praying for the day to come,
When all pieces would fit together

to be whole,

And one day, Love again.

The author's comments:
The majority of my poems are all about the same time frame in my life. I expressed my sadness through words, feeling I had no one else to turn to.
