Broken.

The damsel quit crawling

She grew into a woman
Time came by and her heart strayed away
She looked about
Searched far and near
Found it in the hands of a gentleman
A man with an endearing smile
Skin like the ray of the sun
And utterances of purple blood
Graceful and
Surprise shone through the window of her soul
With fright at it’s forefront
The gentleman didn’t realize he had her heart
A gentle but oblivious soul
Night after night, day after day
She stared at his hand
There it was
He owned her heart
Owned her love unintentionally
The heart had made a choice
A choice she couldn’t change
For Her heart had paralyzed her
The heart was blind
And these hands were spiky
And they gave up the beautiful burden on them
His hands had despised her gift
With each morning he would hide away
And each evening he would slip away
There was no healing
Even time could not be her medicine
No patch for this heart
And so it went back to its owner
Cold and rejected as though hope had failed
For yet another time hope had failed her.

  2. “purple blood” rang heat of love in my mind. Why? She thought she has found a good person to take care of her heart only to see him drop and broke her heart.

    Hmmm…It hurts when love burning deep inside like the sun is unrequited. … Bless your ink. It’s full of realistic life drama that keeps recurring and we always wallow at the feet of time to heal but it doesn’t really help.
