Sunday Rhymes 16

This Heart of Mine

Dampened cheeks, glimmer with a rose shine,
Tears streak, who knows why, except this heart of mine,
A movies string-puller, a meaningful lyric sang,
A longing memory or the last time a departed rang.
Blushed cheeks, and arousing eyes,
A solemn look and long goodbyes,
Pursed lips pressed on the magazine pages,
Boys hanging about looking at women with bets and wages,
A boy’s eyes meet,
A girls gaze greets,
Smiles that were almost forgotten,
The first touch of lips was nearly ungotten.
Times they slide,
Days past, years stride,
Kids they came,
Now follow the famous adulthood fame,
Wrinkles form, but the eyes never fade,
Arthritis takes over, yet the love still bathes,
Friendships formed and ended,
Workplaces changed, hard work never commended,
Gray skies filtering blue,
Harsh words and brutal truth,
Tears stream, a strong embrace,
Anniversaries turned to a competitive race,
The final kiss, the heartbreaking cry,
A partner lowered into the ground, an angel’s wings fly,
Dampened cheeks, glimmer with a rose shine,
Tears streak, who knows why, except this heart of mine.

      Beautifully and creatively written. It reads from a personal perspective and I really liked the line ‘tears streak, who knows why, accept this heart of mine. Your poem really captures the essence of life from ‘an awakening’ to the bitter end. Loved it!
