a key

a broken heart awaits its somber fate the hands of time have made it beat too weak to find the pulse of love it used to seek it fades within a burdened soul abate then hides the key that frees the chains of weight within a soul where darkness seems to peak it cannot beat in harmony nor speak without the stroke of time to guide its gait a gallant soul i give this gift to you break free these chains that weigh this heart of mine awake from dreams a restless soul to see a heart that beats an endless pulse anew and sees again how fate and love entwine when souls in love through time find ways to be January 1 2020 Open me first poetry contest Sponsored by Craig Cornish

Thank you so much Vijay for such a delightful comment my friend...i am trying to learn some forms... this one took awhile...i just feel i have to bend my thoughts to fit forms more than with free verse... hugs

Absolutely beautiful my friend. Such a well crafted poem that really hits the mark with it's meter and rhythm not to mention the amazing feel the theme brings to this piece. Loved this Sandy. And the rhymes continue like a bouquet of the most fragrant flowers. :)

Thank you Chris... your comment has brought a smile... this one took all day to write...i wasn't sure if i was happy with it at first...i am trying forms to learn the rhyme and meter for some contests...i still love my free verse...to me it's much easier... :) hugs

From highest highs... To lowest lows... All points in between... The way you write... Emotions stream... From tears to smiles that gleam... Awesome poetry dear Lady...

Beautiful sonnet Sandra, you're certainly spreading your wings, when I first came to soup I thought poetry was rhyme and rhyme only. I've had my eyes opened for sure. Hope you have a happy new year. Tom
