A heart of stone


Being lonely is not so bad
with that stone in my heart
without being so sad
and empty, every day I start

Slowly it crumbles away
and makes me feel my loss
I want that stone to stay
not living the day by a toss

Why should my eyes ever see
my tongue ever taste
Why should I even be
my life is nothing than waste

Walking through a colorful field
seeing the beauty of life
without my stone, my shield
nothing left to strive

Living in loneliness and pain
with a burning living heart
life will never be the same
forever alienated and apart

I wish I could return
and live my heart of stone
without feelings that burn
not even aware I am alone

But it crumbles away
for again my heart breaks
I can not let it stay
because feeling is all it takes

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
