Broken Heart


Castigation it was
A grave offendous sin
To be wanted, to be loved,
To have a soul that felt
And heart which beat
Its tethering terrifying thump
Banished I was,
An outlaw, a rebel
Fallen, a sinner
Because I loved, I cared
A burden I carry
They call it love
It burns, it soothes
And leaves my heart broken again
Can’t dissuade it,
Can’t accept it,
I just have to live with it
What a couple they are
A battered body and broken heart

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
