To Fear a Broken Heart

To quiver in darkness, lost love to blame. To build a tighter web to bind your heart. Troubled by reason, your soul to reclaim. To hide with the shadows, broken apart. To cover yourself from pain and sorrow, And flee from life, safe in darkness found. Inside the dark, will be no tomorrow. This despair you cling to, a chosen ground. A broken heart becomes your domain, Will always keep you from love's encroach. It brings you comfort this dark thirsty pain, A cold poisonous drink love will not approach. A slow death alone, as your tears begin. You hope love will find you worthy again. date written 10/14/15 Frederic Parker For the contest Trashed 4 sponsor Broken Wings

Hi, Frederick. I particularly like the line, A broken heart becomes your domain." A broken heart certainly becomes the center of all thought when it feels the pain of loss. Thanks for sharing. ~ Lin ~
