Heart

A Poem by Neville

Heart

 

Forever keeping

Time and marking

Moments

There she sits

Left off centre

 

That portion of

Herself

She Fears no man

Will ever want

Yet all men crave

 

Nestled somewhere

Deep within and

Protected on all her

Sides by a somewhat

Softer inner core

 

Then surrounded

By her much harder

Outer shell

Yes there it lies

And lays beating

 

Waiting to be loved

No less impressed

Tho solemnly addressed

Anticipating a sudden

Surprise caress perchance

 

Her heart beats

All a gentle flutter

Like the outstretched

Wings of a

Fledgling sunbittern

I watched on utube a sunbittern, and very beautiful it was too. Such long slender legs. Exterior coatings can often hide a much softer inner core. Just look at Cadbury's cream eggs. There's another one for you. I really like the last stanza. I imagine that feeling.

Well as much as I respect Chris' choice of confectionary, I'd have opted for the journeyman of confection, the cadburys chocolate coated turkish delight.
I think my choice is superior in many ways, but most of all, it isn't an egg with that sugary yolk gunk in it.
Seriously, I wouldn't eat one, even if I was a diabetic having a hypo (well, it wouldn't be my first choice is what im saying)
As for your poetry, yeah, pretty good 😀

cheers Lorry mate you are a brick sir :))
What beautiful words to read - my first of the day. Can imagine your female readers sat sitting with an enigmatic smile on their lips wondering if.. and why not! You've a way of looking deeply beneath layers and seeing most if not all the feminine complexities.

As to that final stanza, it's as delicious as the honey on my toast!

I don't have words for such a nice poem. It brought a big smile on my face. I loved the language and the sophisticated style of the poem. Beautifully and wonderfully framed 💚

You had me even before you got to that last line. But then it went stellar. Wings of a fledgling sunbittern is a poem in its own right. But I suppose it helps if you know what one is.
And the rest of the poem leads you into that so well. Extraordinary. The outer beauty hides so much.

You are very kind Coyote, many thanks indeed.. Have a swell weekend my friend.. N
Your writing is full of Empathy for a broken hearted soul, that's longing once more for warmth and tenderness. But not sure she will ever repossess it. Your gentle heart writes the best delicate poetry, Neville.

Well... I do hate birds lol but that one is elegant and fits the write so well. I love stories of troubled women who feel unwanted but don't see it makes the men flock.

this is beautiful...and yes, some women cannot imagine that men really want them for their hearts and not just their bodies...and if they have suffered the pain of being left...start thinking they aren't worthy of love.
But as your poem expresses...that is not true...
and her heart will start fluttering again, and she will fly to one who definitely wants her heart.

i like the subtle rhymes mixed in here.
