When the Heart Bleeds

When the heart bleeds
The body is silent
The mind is mute
Unable to send healing agents
Coursing through the veins
To bring healing
The body waits…with baited breath
For an outer force to come to the rescue
To bind up the wound
And bring healing


When the body bleeds
The mind is quick to sends signals
That activate the life giving elements in the blood
To start the clotting process
To stop the vital flow
From ebbing away
And endangering life

Ah…ah….but when the heart bleeds
It beats a requiem without music or words
And the body mourns…
Helpless and torn
There is unearthly silence
Accompanied by tears
For the heart no one can rescue
No one can heal
Except the very one
Who made the heart bleed.

    Eileen, every now and then, one comes on soup, like the sun rises every day, as the ray of enlightenment, consider yourself the sun

    This is so true. I enjoyed reading this tonight. It reminds me of the one that says - theonly one that can make you stop crying is - the one that made you cry. Lucilla

    When the heart bleeds, legions of sorrow gather to form a foam mending the cut, and draining the blood before it reaches the ground! A melodic poem with slow and silent beats.. Loved it!
