The Meaning of Love? This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


More by this author
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.

Oh wow...this nearly moved me to tears. I can definatly relate to this poem...which is kinda sad. I always promised myself I wouldn't be 'that girl' that hurts and hurts and hurts over a break up. But I became this girl.

Thank you so much for sharing your passion with us...keep going(:
