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.

Writing is my passion … I hope you enjoy my poem!

your right... i guess i was just trying to say that what some  people think is love is just a physical atraction or an emotional refuge... true love is not blind. then again, true love is seldom found

Everything makes sense if you think too much about it.

Love is not blind. Some people become blinded with it.

No offence.

You don't stop laughing because you grow old; you grow old because you stop laughing. and
Don't tell me the sky's the limit when there's footprints on the moon. and
Sometimes the heart does things for reasons that reason cannot understand.

Wow. That is all i can say. I just love the flow and rythm of it. =) Keep it up!
