Bleeding Hearts

In Personal, Poetry, Writing on November 8, 2012 at 8:45 pm

I came across another old writing – another poem, at that.  It seems I went through a very dark, emo time in my early young adulthood… Anyways, here it is in all it’s gloomy glory.

A bleeding heart
This bleeding heart
My bleeding heart
A hopeless romantic
           flighty and bursting
          a gentle butterfly carried by the wind
This hopeless romantic
          biting the bitter and spitting the sweet
          thoughts and words now oppose
A bleeding heart
          pour it out
          paint the canvas with your poetic sadness
This bleeding heart
          beats merely by design
          and bled out long ago
A weary soul
          exhausted and waiting
          a damsel that still let’s her hair down
This weary soul
          too tainted for a sliver of optimism to seep in
          tired, tired, tired
A bleeding heart
          pour it out
This bleeding heart
          paint the canvas with poetic sadness
My bleeding heart
          pumps only by design now
          and bled out long ago

  1. Just to say I really like your poems! 😉


    • Thanks so much! I kind of feel like a little kid jumping into the deep end and hoping there’s not a shark when I post up my stuff like that. I’m so overly critical of myself that I almost expect it from others, but I’ve gotten such nice things from everyone on here. It means a lot!


      • Your very welcome! People tend to be more sincere when their name is associated with their blog, only the odd anonymous sharks slip through the net, but as a fellow writer and poet don’t let anyone deter you, we give ourselves enough crap as it is! 😉
