A contradictory heart

by Jessie Waddell 9 months ago in heartbreak

A poem about love & loss

A heart that’s full,

But also heavy.

A hand that shakes,

But somehow steady.

Falling apart,

Then coming together,

A push and pull,

An unbreakable tether.

A love unrelenting,

A sorrow so great.

A question of why,

An answer of fate.

Remembered forever,

Forgotten you’re not,

An eternal mark,

In life’s great plot.

Just as one’s given,

Another is took.

A tale so common,

It belongs in a book.

I wish she had met you,

She’d giggle and cheer,

But I feel you around,

So I’ve nothing to fear.

Your door has closed,

So hers could be open.

I’ll love you forever,

And more words unspoken....
