Stony Hearts

A Poem by Stony

Stony Hearts

It’s been said that men have stony hearts


And gravel fills their souls


They rip apart a woman’s heart

And feel they have the right



But I know a man with a marshmallow heart

Sweet and tender is his soul

He holds my heart with hands so warm

And keeps me safe throughout life’s storms

I paused at the "marshmallow heart" part. I'm not really sure how to take that description, maybe because I've never really thought of describing a man's heart into something that fragile. Nonetheless, this is still a very interesting poem. It's a little short but it's honesty makes it a lot better.

Keep Writing. ^__^

Wow! This was a great poem! Some men are cold hearted, and some are actually really nice and sweet! It was well written and detailed! I really enjoyed reading this poem! Great job!

It's very sweet and pretty, but seems a little unfinished... like maybe it was a first draft. I prefer the rawness of what hasn't been rewritten, but not everyone does.

I almost wish it were longer, perhaps a sonnet. It is lovely as is.

This is a sweet poem. I like it. I got a little confused though (maybe I'm just overanalyzing)- but it seemed likt there was trying to be a rhyme pattern but it didn't really know what it was... Eh, I'm just in an editing mood. Good job :)
