Shattered Through It All


How often she told me she loved me
I couldn’t answer truthfully
My words hid my feelings
With fear of causing her harm

I told her I was happy
Not fully explaining my state
Her words of love embraced me
They were truly heaven sent

I smiled with a gladness
Knowing what she did to my heart
I prayed that she’d continue
Willfully playing the part

Her beautiful glowing words
Revealed all she could be
A contentment just for me
This I truly did feel

I could not say I loved her
My true feelings I couldn’t share
Although she truly dwelled in my heart
I could feel her sense of despair

I cried so much I wanted to die
At the thought of her beautiful words
Somehow too soon gone awry
I often said I was happy
But that was just a lie

I felt her wings embrace me
This let my spirit fly to her side
Yet I couldn’t tell her why
For fear I’d chock inside

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
