Something from the Archives...Monday, October 23, 2006

How do thou mend a broken heart

How do thou give chance to a new lover

When the heart still aches for the one that is apart

How do thou long to be loved by another

When the paining doesn't stop keeping you aghast

If the longing of his touch and memories of being together

Retrieves its path to thy mind that has long given up at last

The thought of the separation now withdrawing all thy power

The very sensation of repetition proceeding to take part

Once committed twice will hurt, the ache lasting forever

The birth of a poet, of a mightily useless bard

A common suggestion of melancholy finally taking over

When the words thy speak poetically creates art

Then simple words limericks from the mouth of this versifier

How do thou let go of this dependence, this question I ask

A final plead to enlighten and stop me from making a blunder
