The heart bleeds

 

narrow streams of aching red

stalling as they negotiate time

 

The heart bleeds

 

songs of a smile infected past

turn the handle of memory

 

The heart bleeds

 

histories page left ajar

as the photo invites tears

 

The heart bleeds

 

her beauty departs

upon the unsteady wings of change

 

The heart bleeds

 

the giddy stage of life

throws another actor into the crowd of death

 

My bleeding heart

a pulse that shows I care

a pump, a beat

a rhythm from here back to there
