Broken Lines

Broken Lines

BROKEN LINES

I traced truth carefully
across a falling heart
and she yielded a yes
when I couldn’t cross
I said if hearts are so great
and they have words so soft
that my blood should ripple
of care, of promises, of joy
that can so be fulfilled
I traced truth carefully
and I found thoughts
about broken promises
about broken hearts.
When words hearts again,
We know we two are words
and we too are certain dusts
and mankind are all makers
of promises, hearts and times
they will always break,kill, fail,
Don’t trace hearts again dear
for your truth failed me here
Your Your
truth truth
fail fail
ed ed
me me
ag ag
ain here ain here
