A RESILIENT HEART

I'm sure a therapist would have a ball analyzing my poetry.  Some say the eyes are the mirrors to a person's soul, but since you can't see my eyes, I offer up my written words as testament to who I am and what I have lurking in the darkest recesses of my being.  I seem to always be very closely connected to what the heart feels and how truly resilient it is.  A person's healing capacity always amazes me...especially my own.

This week's Words for Wednesday again brought me mental images of love and struggle, but also of somehow being a better more open person because of that pain and struggle.  The words this week in which I wove a poem were: 

Utopian
plagiarism
necktie
automatic
spinster
devout

OR

navigation
tribulation
propagation
explanation
sensation
adulation


A Resilient Heart
 


She had many days of Utopian love
Where her heart’s plagiarism was written proudly
With many empty, unanswered "I love you’s"
A stabbing sensation to be broadcasted loudly.


Love at first sight was the automatic explanation
For adulation on love’s battle field so gory
She was a decorated warrior, a lonely spinster
Upon whose chest she wore tribulation with such glory.

Although navigation along the sensual garden path
Without propagation she was barren and deemed quite empty
But rich without love’s flowery neckties and glittery things
This devout spinster’s heart was resilient, pure and free.

  1. Wow...nice job. One can be happy on one's own and that's a fact. There are more ways than one to love.

    1. Yes, that's the truth but so many people feel as if they are without a partner it's a character defect or says something horrible about them. Not all of us are meant to love in that capacity or if we did, some of us have decided to take a time out due to all the pitfalls that type of love can have.

    1. Thank you! It's so nice to see such a positive comment about poetry and the people who attempt to write it. I always have thought most people find poetry to be boring and instead of reading it when someone posts a poem, they just blow right through it and go to the next thing that catches their eye. I might be wrong and it may just be my insecurity showing its blushing face, but based on the past very few people usually comment when I write a poem so I take it as meaning either they think the poem sucks and are too gracious to say so or poetry just isn't their cup of tea and they move on to something that does interest them.

  5. Great job! I tried to compose this week's words and got stuck clear up to the axles --you must have a 4-wheel-drive brain. My compliments and admiration!

    1. No 4-wheel drive for me...I float on the river of words provided instead of trying to drive through them.

    1. I loved your blog post, Utopia. After reading it I took a 60 minute spin around the blogosphere and decided that was enough insanity for one day.
