A Cobbled Heart

Quadrille #58 – Cobble us a Poem

~
A Cobbled Heart

 

Her tender heart was
Coming apart at the seams
(it seems)
He found some threads
Of truth to use
To mend the open places
Where trust was seeping out
And stitch by stitch he
Cobbled together the pieces
Until her heart was whole again

Peace Once More

Another Double Elevenie for NaPoWriMo Day Twenty-three

Peace Once More

carapace

hard, brittle

surrounds my heart

protection from his lies

lonely

chisel

finding cracks

letting in love

learning to trust again

peace
