The Meaning of Love? MAG

The beating of my broken heart, now chained and locked away,
I hear much louder, through the night, than words we never 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, yet to be made whole.
My tears can wipe themselves away, but I must save my soul.
Bare feet, run, lead me home, where I am Mother’s child,
And toward the pale rose sunset for a pretty little while.
If broken wings may carry dreams, and carry me to sleep,
Take me far away from love and tell me what it means.

I love this poem! It's cute but sad at the same time. I think this is the best way to describe how someone feels when they're broken-hearted.

I was reading your poem aloud to myself and for some reason my eyes started to water and my voice wavered. I loved this

We make life, the way we want to make it, based on our decisions and choices we make throughout.

 i am just new and i have only read 5 poems so far, 3 that were very good, yours is one of the three. Continue in writing maybe you can make a book, something such as the marked series or whatever you feel comfortable with. GOOD LUCK!
