My Heart

My Heart

A Poem by Aprille
"

written : January 22, 2014

"

I’m always trying not to think of you

I’m still missing you...

 

I don’t want to let go of your hand

But I need to go,

 Take some steps away...

Away means I’m gone forever

 

Yet, you are holding my heart

In your arms, I’ll leave it behind

 

Tears falling on every path

I’m falling apart…

My hands, my feet and all of me

All broken, more than precious jewelry

But please, please, I beg you…

Don’t collect the pieces

Just let me in the emptiness

Until I’m gone and nowhere to be found...

 

While my heart,

For now, you are holding it tight

 

Memories never undergo the art of changing

They are just fading, being forgotten and thrown away

Then without assurance, someday, someone will remember…

 

Someday you will find yourself asking…

“Whose heart am I holding?”

Author's Note

Aprille
I think I was listening to the song "My Heart" by Paramore when I wrote this poem. The thought was completely different , I just wanted to make something out of the title, somehow...

You are a clever and demanding artist.
You ask a lot of life and it will all be revealed, just takes time.
Exquisite writing.

They are just fading, being forgotten and thrown away and in the end "Whose heart am I holding "? hidden sadness in very nice way. Keep up

Forgive and forget is the golden rule- the first can be done easily but latter comes with time.You've penned this from core of your heart.. And its the overflow of your feelings. Touching

Who's heart am I holding? A relationship dead, forgotten, thrown out, still leaves traces behind, occasionally those traces are swept up, pieced together, but they're are never really whole again.
