The Heart’s Redemption

When sleep will not capture with gentleness this wounded heart

and swirling night seems it shall never slow rampaging blood

that grips sanity with icy gloves; I will create peace in sleep;

which drains the paralysis of being – forbidding freedom.

This sleep soothes; cradling as a mother’s song softly holds the newly born.

When slow numbing sadness feathers this stillborn heart

and cloudy tunnels where light rejects vision

seem lidded for eternity; I will create hope.

Hope of love neither foolish nor unreal

catching, returning this soul’s seeping strength.

When faithful solitude no longer eases this soul-eating heart

and dreams flit about in some erotic danse-macabre

where I would rather feel her cold hand crushing this heart;

there I will build the towers of time contented

and happily await the one that may never arrive.

When love stores no destiny in this well-used heart

and tomorrow lives as a simple reflection of yesterday

yesterdays reeking of entropy…unbearable structure’

I will break the circles of self-imposed martyrdom

to loose this heart’s phoenix on the world.

When this heart is forgotten dreams and sleeping love

within the myopic miasma of my maddened mind;

I will survive, struggle in the blistering bind

Of yes and no, forever and never, why and because

while my heart pleasantly plays my emotions of what will be, what was.
