Hole Hearted


i had a dream
the dream was beautiful
so i shared it with you

i had a heart
the heart was fragile
i gave it to you

you had a dream
the dream must have been beautiful
the dream was never shared

you had a heart
human heart but of stone
mine too frail to stay with you

yet it stayed
but yours went away
and left a hole in my heart

    I love the polar opposites of this poem. you had, she had, you gave, she took. You gave until you had nothing left and she left with everything you had. it's really a very sad poem,

    I can feel the pain within the words it was probably more painful than it even comes across because you've learned to conceal that pain so well but you let it out a little at a time in poems like this one holding onto that pain so as to never forget what brought you there. Very nicely done Kanav a really good piece! (Report) Reply

    How sad Kanava! ! Like a citadel with bullet holes, your heart is left with a hole. Who did that offense to you, after so willingly sharing everything of yours with her? She should be penalised.....! ! (Report) Reply

    A heart in love is a fragile heart left with a hole by a the one made of stone, a unique idea. You've nicely presented pun on words! (Report) Reply

    oh kanav, I feel like you have laid your heart on the table for someone
    who was unworthy of your love...I am sorry this has happen to you...
    and I can see from this poem you have a very beautiful heart... of course
    I knew this long ago :) (Report) Reply

    A very poignant write, beautifully expressed. The title is very well chosen: hole instead of whole, very creative! I like this poem very much, it is well crafted and flows as smooth as silk! Thank you for sharing, Kanav. Blessings for a very beautiful Sunday. With every good wish always... (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
