So Few Hearts Intact


I long for the longing of you
therefore, I will not reach out
to call.

I miss you but not enough
to make myself move.

Your kiss fits my lips-
no others do-
and
I'll not allow another's mouth
on mine, this space is hollowed.

I have had my heart cut in two
and hoped from this happiness.

I know this is only a dream
a broken heart in two
must mean

two thoughts:
Go or Stay;
Love
and/or
Love's Remains.

How many hearts in view
still intact
after Love's

been through?

Not many I'd surmize

but all would still conclude

it was and is

still
worth the ride.

My conclusion:

a broken heart

is better to have

than one

intact

and yet unused.

Reviewed by John Flanagan
The title is tremendous:
break into and break in two..
breaching the stockade and entering
love and then the heartbreak
of rejection or loss..it's all here, Lonnie,
and it's very fine indeed.
Yes!

Reviewed by Janna Hill
It seems the love of the conundrum is as much as for the person... But I agree it is better than a heart unused.
An excellent write Lonnie.
