Circular path of self-deception and thwarted desire.

~Cruel Heart~

Cruel heart,
tattered and torn;
see ye not?

Cruel heart,
tear-stained, withered soul;
feel ye not?

Cruel heart,
of fearful anguished song;
hear ye not?

Cruel heart,
blinded mind hath forsaken soulís desire;
realize ye not?

Cruel heart,
on oblivionís desolate path;
observe ye not?

Cruel heart,
atremble with secret yearning;
sense ye not?

Cruel heart,
of self-devouring fate;
know ye not?

Handicap is doled out at random, by accident or fate in life's dynamics whether it be a severed heart or limb..."atremble with secret yearning"...'tis better to come out unscathed than self-deception...

Nice...very nice...a cruel heart is simply not. Sometimes they change but more often, they just wither and fester. Good job here.
