Heart’s Desire

I feel the blood flowing like tears, while she lies still, so still, empty.

Heart’s Desire is a poem written by Lynn White and shared with The Ugly Writers under the theme Something Spooky for the month of October

 

Heart’s Desire

 

She said, I was her heart’s desire

sometimes

I think

she meant it.

I think

sometimes

I felt it too.

But now I feel

empty

of desire

I feel

only strangeness

holding her heart in my hand.

I feel it pulsating with life.

I feel the blood flowing like tears,

while she lies still,

so still,

empty.

Emptied of desire,

like me.

Only wonder.

Only I wonder

what will happen next.

I live in north Wales. I have been writing at various points in my life since I was in my teens. My work is influenced by issues of social justice and events, places and people I has known or imagined. I am especially interested in exploring the boundaries of dream, fantasy and reality.
