My Heart Keeps Beating

Written By: Ryland Joshua Matthews Date: Thursday, September 9th, 2010 My heart keeps beating While my body dies, my heart keeps beating As the world sighs, this heart keeps repeating A strangled cry, a desolate embrace Of a flower strewn grave. Of a lover erased. A dream long ago fulfilled, it no longer lingers Brought to despair by Thanatos’ brushing fingers As my feet move me forward, one step at a time I keep looking back to that witch was mine. I can’t help but wander what wrath I did incur To bring me to this place, this pain I must endure At the precipice of madness my mind will now dwell The horrors made real, all the ravages of hell. And in this world what we sew we must go reaping And even without a soul My Heart Keeps Beating.

Ryland, no mater what we go through, our hearts keep beating and there is pain to endure along the road of life. I was very touched by your poem. "Been there" as they say. Best wishes, Carolyn
