Once Upon a Time….


Thursday photo prompt: Frozen #writephoto


Her frozen heart,

Struggles to beat,

Her secrets are carried there.

Grasping at straws,

She struggles to breath,

A heart is so tender,

So easily broken.

Her heartache she veils,

So no one will know,

The grief that she feels,

Within her frozen heart.

                          by Karen DeMers Dowdall

    Beautiful and sad at the same time. Hearts get broken but I agree with Liz,
    A frozen heart will thaw when the warm wind touches.

    1. Miriam, I agree with Liz too. Yes, a broken heart will mend in time, but some broken hearts can never heal. It depends on what broke the heart. With the lost of a child, the heart lives on, but never really heals.

    Lovely, but oh, so sad, Karen. Love the almost circular feel to this poem though.

    1. Sue, yes, I know very sad. Thank you for the lovely compliment and I feel so much better already. 🙂 I am reacting to personal and world situations that make me very sad, but I recoup quickly, I hope. Karen Anna 🙂
