Poetry Confetti: Untitled

life-863142_1920

The heart wants

The heart needs

The brain taunts

Action proceeds

I’m getting nowhere and I am getting there fast

Nothing comes easy and when he does it doesn’t last

It’s an endless cycle. I hardly can cope

Letting go feels like giving up hope

As I struggle with how to keep hope on a respirator

The light in my heart is being supported by a generator

Love wails

Romance sails

Off into the distance

Against the tears of resistance

  1. Nikki, I enjoyed this poem (and I’m not usually a poetry kinda gal! smiles …). I love how you capture the pull and tug effect of the head and heart. It’s a beautifully written reminder that love ain’t for the faint of heart (pun intended). Keep writing! 🙂
