My Bleeding Heart – Part 2

Date Written: September 12, 2017

For the footprints

that walked in and your erased,

lament not!

My heart was worn out

by the many chances given

only to be replaced by One

less deserving.

To watch the person I loved

choose so unwisely,

I guess the same love was

to blame for your other match.

We did depart amicably,

with heart in hand,

I meandered with

my small footprints,

never to meet again.

I would lie

if I said I cared not

for your afflictions

of bleeding heart.

I would wash off

the blood with my tears

were you near.

To love you

and bear witness

to your pain,

leaves me drained.

 

Smile my Darling,

as the water laps

against the shores off Scotland,

I feel you.

I feel your sadness

I feel your bleeding heart

as it bleeds like mine.

    Departure of love is a foot print but both felt hurt , bleeding hearts!

    Sometimes the footprint that departs is blamed for the other one’s bleeding heart…he fails to realize as you pointed out that the loss is for both to bear.
