Matters Of The Heart
Author: Robert


There are things that go on deep inside
that most will never tell,
deeper than the deepest sea,
some reach down to hell.

I know how deep I've buried mine,
a spade could never reach,
no matter how hard I tried,
the heart's impossible to teach.

For the heart I've learned
has a mind of it's own,
and it guides us on our way,
and how we respond, goes way beyond
how we will repay.

Choices seem so right at times,
the mind will tell us so,
but in the very end,
the heart may tell us no.

oh yeah

This kind of writing and understanding inspired my Damaged Goods poem. The kind understanding of not being ready to share.Is all I needed,instead of being told I'm an ice queen not sharing. You get better results with honey than vinegar.Thanks Robert for letting me share. You and Capricorn don't condemn or judge.thanks guys and gals.

Damaged goods

Thanks Barb..I'm glad that this poem helped to unlock those feelings. Feelings are bearing one's soul and not everyone is will to do that.. Sometimes it helps others...
