look less leaps

how many times have i leapt

and landed bruised and broken

how many times did the siren’s song

pound my heart onto the smashing rocks

how many times did i swerve

from the realisation that I

am the only true keeper of my heart


submission for dVerse Quadrille #47

    I think we have to swerve a little…to find some beautiful things in life, but in the end, we are the keepers of our own heart. Wise words indeed.

    Phew! If we all took this to heart, who would write blues lyrics, love poems… and country songs. Okay, maybe the last wouldn’t be such a loss…. So much personal wisdom in so few words — an Ikea manifesto poem!
