A Willing Heart

broken heart

A willing heart-broken and disabused-
Brought low like the evening tide, refuse and bitter root exposed
In the foggy listless sky
Littered and unattended, its history exposed
One of aching grinding needs nestled together
Cacophonous in its disarranged silence
No distinction to the pain but piles
Of junk and matter quivering in reckless choruses
Made of regrets forgotten long ago
Each injury a voice creating disquieting harmony
No more rising melody but song forged out of miserable intent
Each stanza incomplete and forlorn

A willing heart-battered and unattended-
Brought low like the evening tide, refuse and bitter root exposed
In the foggy listless sky
No one has to dared to touch it, fearing detriment in kind
Decaying disarray marking clear disguise
Of sharp and dangerous moments
Rusted reasoning and warped passions hidden
In a pile of longing and discomfiture
Menacing lack on a backdrop of emptiness discolored by
The numbness of bone chilling waters and
Frozen there in an unrelenting sludge

A willing heart-handled improperly-
Brought low like the evening tide, refuse and bitter exposed
In the foggy listless sky
On warm spring days, you’d never believe
That crystal, clear-blue waters hid such useless fury
Where sunlight could not reach
Even as torched delta skies give way to the gray matter
Of rain and Sturm und Drang
Silent sins sit dormant, fueling wrath and melancholy
Stuck in muddy waters acquainted long with unrelenting grief
The fall evening the only revelation of dangerous wonders
That nestle violent beneath the undertow

A willing heart-now undone-
Brought low like the evening tide, refuse and bitter root exposed
In the foggy, listless sky
