and post notes and photos about your poem like Gregory R Barden.
Hearts thrum ...
Some, far heavier than others
Darker, deeper, more tender and intense ...
Those, hung on the hook of vows and affiance
So quickened by a mournful word
A promise that bloats with guarantee and dream
Its hems, glinting with hopeful sparks ...
The most treasured of tales
A grand and vainglorious fiction
Honed, precise, with sublime edge
To bleed lovers' beats to stillness ...
