Troubled Heart


Each morning as my eyes 
open to skies of blue
your love i reach out for
but far away you are 
as my heart travels in miles
just to lie close to your heart
never close are the miles
as walls of emptiness dwells within me
it makes me wonder if you smile
like the way i do 
as toughts of you 
rides softly through 
the corridors of my heart.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
