The Meaning of Love

July 29, 2010
By , Grove City, OH
The beating of my broken heart,
Now chained and locked away.
I hear much louder through the night,
Than words will ever say.
As hollow kisses turn to dust,
And fall against my skin.
I pray that I might find the strength,
To fall in love again.
Abandoned innocence stripped away,
Discarded on the floor.
In the dirt I bury hope,
That love leaves unlocked doors.
I am held though never cherished,
But I must save my soul.
Bare feet, run, lead me home,
And leave this story untold.
Run toward the pale rose sunset,
For a pretty little while.
If broken wings may carry dreams,
Then carry me to sleep.
Take me far away from love,
And tell me what it means.

There are a lot of very powerful phrases in this. It's really intriguing!


okay, so this might sound silly, but does the Bluffton University English Festival sound familiar to you?

I could swear I've seen this before...maybe I just read it a while ago on here. haha.
