Silly heart

Silly heart

A Poem by Najam Us Saher

SILLY HEART
Our heart is a monster,
That is why our ribs are cages,
Sometimes emotions feels like a torture,
We live with them since ages.
Feelings change, people does,
Love becomes forgotten and buried,
The monster that resides,
Suffocates and leaves us worried.
People play with feelings,
They crush and torture emotions,
There lives no hope for living,
We find no solution. 
It feels like everything has come to an end,
Nothing can make us feel better,
Scarred hearts with broken dreams cannot be mended
So we are left here, in this pain to suffer forever.
We blame ourselves saying 'my silly heart'
And that is why our heart is a monster,
It is caged since the start.
We let it loose, to give it a chance,
It loves more than it receives
And leads us to an unavoidable circumstance,
Our silly little heart often deceives
And makes us the person, we never wanted to be.

Oh! Thank you very much for such a remark. :)
That is why our ribs are cages.
Nice play on words. I like where you were going with the poem. Maybe using "Silly" makes the poem less intense, but I see the picture you painted and I like it
