Foolish Demented Heart

Foolish Heart, since you don’t stop
That most foolish rant and rave
I will have to tie you up
And bury you in a cave

That would surely silence you
And let me live in peace
For now you just torment me
And I can’t live in ease

You’ve not given wisdom right
You’ve left me bruised and torn
When I gave heed to your voice
I was left to grieve and mourn

You are a foolish foolish heart
Your chambers devoid of light
Wisdom you beat and tied up
And you plunged me into night

You made me share secret thoughts
You made me open to slight
And I had to suffer shame
Flagellate myself with might

You’ve proven a real traitor
I see who you really are
You chose to see his beauty
And have left me with a deep scar

You fell for those angel eyes
You fainted at that warm smile
Made me act like a schoolgirl
Too innocent to beguile

But I fell flat on my face
With myriad eyes staring on
You are a damned wretched thing
I demand that you be gone

Stay hidden in that dank cave
With your mouth gagged till you bleed
You put me through hell and back
Your damn voice I will not heed

Aw…I’m a free woman now
I will go and seek revenge
Of all those who mocked my love
My spilt blood I will avenge

Devoid of love and feelings
I’m a Snow Queen made of ice
I enact your wicked ways
For they think I’m soft and nice

My foolish demented heart
Stay tied up until you rot
You did your damndest uptmost
But love’s fool…I AM NOT!

    There is nothing foolish or demented about your heart. But if I only read this poem I would be very scared*lol* well done!

    "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned"... I believe Shakespeare wrote this with you in mind. Way to tell that heart who's boss! I like when you write with this unexpected rage... spicing things up with variety, me likes it!

    Now THIS is more like it! Let your heart push back when it is pushed. The last line just laced it smooth. Beautiful!

    Probably "Demented" is a very harsh word for a heart. But the poem is excellent. This time you surprised me and offered me a fave. I understand that you are a dueler, a fighter of poetry, and this charisma is rare. I am impressed. :) Thank you.

    Demented because the heart is sometimes raving mad! Perhaps lunatic heart? I did want to give the concept of lunacy...with age...we forget..the heart forgets the pain and keeps up with her crazy ways. Thanks for the input.

    Oh the heart, we can no more control its beating than we can where it leads us. Cold hearts may lead a safe life but I suspect a boring one, though flagellation could make it less so i suppose lol. Take care, Richard

    True, my dear...so true! That's why we need to make it suffer for the suffering it has caused us! ;) Sometimes boring is good...at least you don't bleed. Liked the flagellation bit, eh? Richard...you will be sarcastic....Incorrigible my dear! BTW...this is so part of your charm!

    Amen, Sister. My heart is just as gullible. The bugger leads me to all kinds of situations where my conscience won't allow. lol. Have a good weekend, Eileen. Licia :-)

    Any battle fought against our heart is a battle lost! A beautiful sad poem too human to be ignored! Would it be better to set our hearts free? Just a thought! Excellent writing and a 7, for I know of lost battles! Thank you!

    I know, my dear poet...I know. Sometimes...even though we endure pain, we are unable to set them free...It would hurt even more. Thanks for the visit and your kind remarks. I see you also have faced the same battle. I know you will be victorious!
