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


hard, brittle

surrounds my heart

protection from his lies



finding cracks

letting in love

learning to trust again
