Winter Tangerine #TristaDaniell responding to #WTWrites Day 1 #Poetry Month Challenge. Prompt: Write an ode to your heart….here’s mine:
Your love is bitter sweet.
With each beat, you bring me life.
With each beat, closer to death.
it’s you, forever with me
pushing me forward
Oh, how you taunt me
Thumping through the pains of life
Wailing about the wrongs not right
Reaming against the darkness that fights
to consume us…
The thing that goes bump in the night
Daring me to delve into my subconscious
and dwell in the darkness of my soul
that I might become whole
and heal the wounds that ache
each time you pulsate….
How dare you!
I’ve tried, but…
I cannot escape you.
Lest I become heartless.
I simply cannot do.
