A Heart can know Despair

Young eyes watch moonbeams 
Chase stars across the sky
Night time dreams in colour
All new, vivid and bright 

A young girl lies awake
A new life still in bloom
A shadow darkened doorway 
A nightmare of evil, looms.

A heart can know despair 
Eyes too young to know the truth
A night that lasts forever
Falls into a shattered youth

A plea and cry unheard
By a world in harsh decay
No more colour to surround her
Only a blackened haze	

A heart can know despair
In a life that knows no love
No more dreams to carry her
A teenager on the run

Alley ways and side streets
Is the way that money’s made
A trust that lies there rusting
And a cobwebbed heart, no pain

A heart can know despair
A mother’s undying love
Of a child lost and broken
Years apart from her arms
That should have once protected
A dying wish for them to be
A warmth to be together
A dream that will never be.

    Another piece to which I wholly related. I enjoy the depth of your emotions, and how you are not afraid to "go there". You can officially count me a fan of your work; I am adding you to my "fave poets" :)

    A very deep and sorrowful poem. Every heart has known some despair in life, but eventually something comes along to erase that feeling. I can relate to this poem, as well. Wonderful work!

    thank you again Linda. I like to write emotional pieces, something to stir people inside gets them thinking.
