It’s a man-made heart

Their words told me how to feel,

Look what they did to me,
Their art they embraced,
With their hands,
My heart they sculptured,
A stone hard and dusty,
Evaded without a care
It is barren and cold,
It’s a man-made heart
Do I even feel?
Look at my heart,
A stone hard and cold,
I take a cloth white and shiny,
Watch me cover up my pain,
Behind the light
The laughter
The fecade
I stand,
I look better when my heart is hidden
But what will I do when the wind arouse?
Where will I go when my cloth is blown away?
Will I chase the wind?
Will I face the truth?
Where is my cloth now?
All blown away,
My cover up left with the wind
Before the dark
The weeping
The reality,
I will stand
With my hands
My heart
I will re-sculpture
It shouldn’t be a man-made heart
I will paint it bright
Adorn it with the light
Love
Peace
Forgiveness
And strength
It shouldn’t be a man-made heart
It’s my heart
In it, my art will rule

  1. A beautiful testament to taking control of how you will create that art. It’s true, humankind has the capability of turning hearts to stone. Beautiful poetry, Sharon!

      1. You are really the only one who holds that ability within you. I imagine you will sculpture the most beautiful piece. You are welcome, Sharon!!!

      2. It will be because it’s already there, you just have to chip away the hurt and pain to reveal the beauty that already exists in your words. Thank you, Sharon. Happy sculpting to you 🙂

      3. Trust when I say it is genuine and that the respect you show me is mutual. It is good to be able to show love in friendship to a fellow poet, struggling to shed her pain, for who among us has not known intimately the shape of darkness? Much light to you 🙂 🙂
