Broken heart

In the faceless crowd

I can see the saddest smile;

Blue springs are cold,

And no sunshine can warm the heart.

The iced thumbs

Are rubbing the red cheeks,

Losing the faith.

I will put my arms

Around the frozen shoulders

And sing a song to close your eyes.

A song that lifts the broken pieces

And puts them back together.

A song to calm

The apprehensive seizures

The past gives you every time

You try to remember.

The faceless crowd

And it’s chaotic movements

Have bruised and scarred

The gentle eyes.

Reach your hands towards mine,

Press your pain against my lips.

Close your eyes and immerse yourself

In the enswathing song,

And let the voice of peace

Heal the broken heart.
