Into Your Heart

Into Your Heart

A Poem by Doodley
"

The wisdom of the stars

"
Like a diamond night I'm shining, over the Earth's expanse afar,
As Gaia's clock is twining down, on all that you be and are.

I see you in the shadows, a stone maiden where you stand,
All bold and proud defiance, a rare beauty of this land.

With life before you majestic, like the finest, purest gold,
Father time is your companion, it shall be long before you're old.

Yet you stand there, in the darkness, all shoulders straight and tall,
Guarding all the secrets that you keep, won't reveal to all.

When Cupid shot his arrow, whereupon most men would fall,
You threw up all the barriers, hid behind your stony wall.

And Love's ethereal arrow, from the impact, did it clatter,
Somersaulted through the evening breeze, to the ground it came, to shatter.

And with my luminent, starry eye, saw next, to my amaze,
You straightened up yourself again, and averted all your gaze.

So as I linger here yonder, aloft the tranquil night,
I shall send you pearls of wisdom, engorged with all my light.

For tho you are a babe, your time is not finite,
And the hallowed ground you walk, is dying in its plight.

Too many selfless souls, would die for Cupid's kiss,
So, next time he shall fire; Be brave! Don't let it miss!

For in the dying of our twilight, as Death he comes to get,
No man or woman wants to plead, for a life of lost regret.

So b'fore you take your final sigh, relax your final breath,
Heed my words; your shining star, who thinks of you as best;

Live for all her beauty, life, b'fore this mortal coil you depart,
And just let a little Love into your heart.

Just let a little Love into your heart.

Doodley, This was a hard one for me to review, as I'm torn between possibilities concerning what it is about. With words like stony, "...you stand there in the darkness, all shoulders straight and tall..." and "...your time is not finite..." well! This suggests to me a beautiful stately statue, some type of monument; when you mention "...the hallowed ground you walk, is dying in its plight...." it suggests (maybe) a monument in a cemetery.
Either that or it's a (Valentine?) wish and tribute to one you love (or loved) now standing in the shadows (away from you). Oh, and there's a million more possibilities about its message. I like writing that makes me think, so I think this is a wonderful write, thought provoking and deep. Thank you for sharing it with us. take care...dan

So true we need to open up and remove barriers to let love in but we need to love ourselves first but then again we can be choosy if we like as the right one is the right one and not every arrow needs to hit home all in good time- wonderful words🌹

doodley,
Which do we choose to give away a living thriving vulnerable heart or a heart, not a heart at all. A stony heart is not warm not beating with life in its ability to try, to fail, to love, to make mistakes. This poem was one of reflection and a reminder to remain true and work for the good in this world.
blessings,
Kathy

With the stone maiden line I saw mountains and also old time statues and artifacs. I see that was not your idea. Yes, we all need more love in our hearts. Valentine

Thank you for reading.
Do not know how it is that I am just now discovering this poem, but so glad I did. I am adding it to my favorites, for indeed it speaks of walls and fortresses some of us build around ourselves to slight would be lovers in their pursuit of beauty and spirit. I read in a below comment that this hit its mark to the intended audience. This I am so glad to hear! May they know how very admired they are through these words. I can relate to the emotion and feeling here. Bravo, once again dear writer!

Congratulation!
I love the message in your poem, especially the way you took your time getting there, with a relaxed pace to match the interesting rhyme & rhythm, well-done thru-out. I know your message is spot on, since so many have closed their hearts. What I like most is that you aren't talking AT the reader, but gently coaxing & respectfully requesting this possibility for an enhanced life. Thanks for sharing.

*throws hands in the air* Alright i confess!!! My error.....haha
It would seem, that as I ponder this quite magnificent poetic ditty, that the writer hisself might like to be the one to crack the facade of this stone maiden and be the one to ride off into yonder sunset with the maiden who has already broken so many hearts!

I read it twice to fully understand it, and when I did....wow, it felt like you were talking directly to someone I know. I love the message. Listen to your star who thinks of you as best, and stand brave staring as cupid's arrow makes it's way to your heart. Let love in. Another excellent write. Thanks for sharing

Thanks for the continued support. Have a good day.
i like the message...like jackie deshannon sang..."put a little love in your heart"

and we need to while we are young...if we already get so jaded at a young age...we miss out on so much of life...and of love.

well done.
