Uncertain Heart

Certain sorrows,
Blue rivers,
Flow down your cheeks,
Yanks and twists,
At my heart,
My hippocratic oath,
“I’ll love you forever.”

Whispers from you,
Secret and silent,
Speaks through the knife
Of uncertain questions,
Solo love,
Which love lies,
Cracks and shatters,
Bits of hearts fly.

And I squeeze
And clutch,
‘Till the beats stop,
It gnaws at me,
From head to toe,
And I can only let go.

Who would want an uncertain heart?

The way the word flow is quite capturing and the meaning is not only beautiful in a sad touch, but true since we are human and we have doubts no matter what we do... Please read and comment on some of my recent poems:)
