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
