Conglomerate Heart

Isn't the Heart like a snowflake
beating so very cold at times
as to freeze an angel's wings
in goblets of devilish wine

Isn't the Heart like a monkey
swinging from vine to indigo vine
leaving a smile or a scratch
on the eaves of a hopeful face

Isn't the Heart like a firefly or star
breathing life into sable skies
pulsing a lover's lavender soul
with a lute made of fading scars

Isn't the Heart like a raft
made for one...sometimes two
like birdsongs sewn from frosted glass
a beauty to be remembered 
but never one to last

Isn't the Heart like a garden or maze 
casting a million gossamer rainbows
always leaving melancholy memory
while honoring the spirit of the rain

The Heart is an orphan made of silk,
the charred soul of a runaway king...
the heart is a whispering zero-echoing
off the granite walls of infinity...
the heart is everything's
everything
