Double Glass Hearts

Poetry By: Wilbur

two hearts as one-a double heart crafted in glass- is the inspiration for this bit of fun - with names changed to protect the innocent and unaware!

Glass Hearts

zeke says, look em,
see our hearts?
em does not see them
and says no, what parts?
zeke says not parts - hearts
hung right up there
em says hearts are parts
and i still don't see where
zeke heaves a sigh
how it's always been
if he points to the sky
em's wiping his chin
he turns her 'round
points up overhead
says those fine glass hearts
strung on that thread
awk erg em cries out
oh that cannot be right
a heart can't be glass
nor strung like a kite
zeke sighs again
oh well what's the use
zeke has got zen
em's never loose
he pulls her about
holds her face to his
asks please do not shout
let me say how it is
i made the two hearts
i shaped them together
just like cupid's darts
love's made to weather
i made them of glass
on purpose i did
so they have your class
and they've got my id
i've loved you emma lee
since first you caught my eye
you are the love for me
'til i curl up and die
yes glass can break, but
this piece will not
each bit of glass i cut
and each soldered dot
is now a strong shrine
that reflects me and you
our hearts do entwine
our love is true-blue
zeke knows em is timid
always acts comme il faut
but she won't put a lid
on zeke's wish to show
how he lives in her soul
how together is right
how together they're whole
together they're light
so she opens her arms
to pull zeke in real tight
they fashion love charms
all through the night
their hearts are a-twirl
they glitter and gleam
a boy and his girl
entwined in their dream
zeke is em's true sun
she's his true moon
glass heart two-as-one
reads like a rune
reflecting life's chances
it flickers, a torch
glass heart that dances
hanging there on the porch
all down the years
spinning into hereafter
sharing zeke and em's tears
and all of their laughter


double glass heart enchants,
depict two hearts as one -
but as heart transplants ?
cannot be done
