A Heart I Want Fulfilled

A Heart I want Fulfilled
A Heart I Want Fulfilled

Who am I now, burned, betrayed and
a husk of what I was,
yet I see too much, know too much,
to just accept it out of hand,
and this heart still beats,
I am incomplete, but love seems far,
and my heart too marred to want to stay.

Love is not my problem,
I love deeply, so many things,
but finding a heart as mine, I find,
an impossible task, too much to ask,
when what I see abandons
all confidence that love exists for me;
so what do I do, let go my dreams?

Love is like an elusive light
lost in the night and far from my yearning,
and the stars offer hope,
yet they are what have been,
and love too has been in my life,
only to fail a heart that speaks of eternity,
when they live in moments, so transitory.

Perhaps letting go will find my plight,
with or without I’ll fight,
for sharing is what my soul dictates,
and in love I’ll give my every state of being,
until life consumes me,
lifts me up or misuses me,
until my last breath becomes a sigh.

    Never, ever give up those dreams, Tony. You are a loving soul with much love to give and deserving of much love – and there is still love waiting for you. I found that letting go letting be has greatly eased the pain of wanting so what is out there for me is in peace and will come to me at the right time. I also know that real love can be for eternity, so be at peace. Beautiful verse full of emotion and well penned. Take care.

    This might be one of the best pieces of yours I’ve had the privilege of reading Tony. It’s direct and laden with emotion on so many different levels that I found myself re-reading it again and again; finding something new and thought provoking each time. Better earmark this one for the next book.

    So emotive Tony..such a heartfelt write..I do think love is sometimes tricky misleading us to believe it is true and permanent while it maybe just hollow and temperory….for the wonderful person you are, I am sure you wouldn’t have to let go of any of your dreams..thank you for sharing and have a lovely day!
