Heart Feels…

What the Heart Feels...regardless
What the Heart Feels…regardless

What does the heart feel,
how can it break free
from the limits of its expectation,
the machinations of past
that burned flesh and soul
and made blind potential,
that awaits renewal.

Like waves reality flows over the soul,
as if an incoming tide,
under full moon, that luminescent glow
a tainting review of clarity,
aspires not to unclothe the blue,
rather uplift the status quo,
where comfort abides the calm.

We choose the uncomplicated,
rather than disarm truths lingering,
for pain is an echo of past,
just as painful in rebound,
and astounded we are as to the depth of it,
the sheers weight we carry,
oblivious to the scars.

What good the gain
when pain follows as surely as day,
each moment of bliss an unsatisfied kiss
left lingering in dreams,
when all I hoped was honesty,
a positive mind in symmetry
and a smile of reassurance.

Regardless, the hearts knows,
love is everywhere, and this heart
has sewn its seeds,
and in expression, pleads
that life ensue in comfort’s due,
where life itself is my companion,
love my aspiration.

    Beautifully expressed Tony, LOVE once a taste of it given, like nectar from the gods, we feel lost without it. Yet to love is a gift so received, yet abused by so many. I am like you thankful to have felt that deepest expression that any human can receive, LOVE. For without it we are like a dying willow without breath from the sun we perish. If we can keep love in our own lives, then let’s ensure we share it with others each day to help lift up their tired and weary souls. Very emotive and skillfully penned as always.

    So many fish in the sea, waiting to love. You are right my friend, love is out there, everywhere, and the heart wants what it wants, regardless. Nice work as always Tony. Well penned.

    Love was my aspiration also, but, alas was not meant to be – though I will hold it in my heart forever. May you find your true love, Tony. Beautiful poem. Take care.

    Thanks Phyllis, love is everywhere and I’ll not be bereft of it. I feel blessed, regardless. Take care.
