From my new book of poetry, 'My Secret Heart', written under my pen name, Samishii Suzume, "The Lonely Sparrow"...



It bit me like a serpent

And its wound was hard and deep,

Then It hissed its satisfaction

And smiled its sly relief,

 

Contented now and sleepy

As if exertion wore it thin,

It recoilded and lay back upon itself

And I, began to die within,

 

The Serpent of Disappointment

The Pit Viper of Broken Dreams,

I think is the most venomous of all beasts

For atleast the pain so seems,

 

So young and full of innocence

So full of trust and flare,

Believing every promise

Distaining every care,

 

But Reality is a callous Dragon

Spawning seed both cruel and plenty,

Wisdom, is the balm that heals

But who has such balm at twenty?

 

Older now and wiser

I've learned to go slowly from the start,

But the pain still haunts me from the day

I died within my heart...

 

                       ...Samishii Suzume~...

Good write for your book too to pass on love in your youth not feeling that all rejected but able to talk about it and look for more wondrous love in your future/
