half moon heart

there used to be
a calm in his walk
a peace in his mind

he was never 
an arrogant man
but you could see
the ego in his eyes

confident in himself
to accomplish any task

he had won her 
heart this way

she had taken his
when she left

now he was sleeping
in the sandbox
trying to dream a memory
seven worries from
a heart attack

stepping on the frayed
stones of his soul

could he expedite
his eyes to the blind
let someone else
see her through them
giving the floodgates
to someone else

who would cry for him

if only he could turn
tears to golden coins
they would never 
buy love again

he would become the drifter
who survived phony love
a secret buried in
his ebony shadow

hidden in his
half moon-heart

    Wonderful. It's putting beautiful thoughts such as this one out there that makes any experience so unbearable worth making it through. You really know how to drop someones heart in a second.

    "if only he could turn tears to golden coins". I love that line. Very creative and emotional write.
