Corroded Heart

Corroded Heart 

a good-bye was said in silence,
no utterance to sooth the heart,
crackling molds of decadence,
shredded, splattering parts,
ripped and torn in ashes,
smithereens blistered in flares,
a heart that could love only once,
wasted, tattered, unfair –
ruthless, loveless scoundrels,
ate it all away,
a lifeless vessel laid wasteless,
as they all happily played

    Such a poor broken thing, has it no place to mend, to fix and unend the wickedness of this world. As always beautiful words, enticing and inspiring.

    Very vivid images and the sound of the words makes it more vivid. Thanks!

    Great imagery. This reminds me someone I once truly cared about, but, alas, the loveless games played buy ‘others’ left him a ‘lifeless vessel’…a shame really 😦

    • Thank you ladyliterati! Unfortunately, I can relate to your friend… I wish no one ever went through such pains. However, I have learned sometimes they make the best writing inspirations.

  4. Fabulous imagery….So intense and a work of abstract perfection.

  5. Superb – real rhythm and eal corrosion felt there, with powerful lines and finish – thanks!

    • Thank you yepiratemanagua! That is great to hear {read} – I wonder often times if the words are flowing the way I hear them for others. 🙂

      • I think this one really is effective. The reader is taken by the rhythm and flows with it – though the words bite, as they should, its corrosive after all, and not too sentimental at all..some wonderful play on words, as the last line admits
