NaPoWriMo Day 20: “Ruined”

None desire the
leaky mug or
cracked vase
which cannot
hold a beautiful
blossom;
so, too, a broken
soul or the
fractured heart,
ruined for
love…..

NaPoWriMo Day 19! (This month is flying!)

Thoughts blister from
burning emotions
scalding through veins.

Heartbeat a thrum,
pumping the bellows
lest sensation wane.

My heartstrings strum
to rising passion –
pleasure or pain –

one they become,
searching for outlet and
not in chains remain.

NaPoWriMo Day 18: “Home”

Home, I’m told, is
“where the heart
is”, but a life full of
many loves scattered
far and wide has
littered little heart
fragments and crumbs
which form many paths
that may be followed
in reverse to many a
place that once felt like
home.

Hold that….

Hold that dream;
Keep it close.
Shelter it:
Safe within soul.
Nourish it
In heart and mind.
Cherish it.
Hope for it
Lest it slip away…
