Break My Heart

Break My Heart

A Poem by MsJewel
"

~ a love poem written in Espinela form ~

"

art ~ Henry Asencio

 

 

 

How shall I guard my heart from you

for you’re haunting my very soul

and all my dreams it seems you stole

in dark of night and daydreams too

 

It is as though this ache that grew

the warm desire that spread so fast

must be a spell that you have cast

to capture me with all your charms

So love, please hold me in your arms

and let my heart just break at last!

~~~

So should we be happy or sad for your heart Julie? Cause where I went was to that Heart song, "He's A Magic Man". If off, then perhaps "Unchain My Heart" would be better. But in either case, you always intrigue with your "love scribbles"...

I loved this one. I hadn't noticed any specific structure, I just enjoyed it. Knowing it was an exercise in structure and discipline for me does not add to my enjoyment of it. HOWEVER I might try something similar...so thank you Julie.

Powerful emotions, great imagery, words are very magical and gives the audience a movie like feel. To be a hostage of love wanting to be set free by the lover just beautiful. Soulful also I felt like loving again lol. Thanks for sharing I shall be reading more of your work.

You're welcome.
Your espinela is flawless, very clever and well written. Might inspire me to do one of my own or at least use a set form more often! This poem is to be appreciated, for sure. Glad I read it
