Life without love is a hermit’s charade Poem by Mark Heathcote


There are hearts in a charade
That can never be lit
Whose shining patina is constantly on the blip?

With bricks, trowel and a spade
They’d build a concrete wall.
Never; allowing, their inner selves to glow or pall.

They’ll live alone and can’t be dissuade
It’s a hermit’s life for them, again.
Until, their final amen.

Their fatigue is to be buffeted
And unloved, but I’ll say it again…
Their hearts are living in a cold charade.
