    few shorter ones all in the same place. All with the word heart in them.Hooray.

    Captive


    Two bindings or straps
    One attaches each ankle
    To the outer recess
    Buckles lash the wrists

    A cage, bone wrapping
    Writhing within
    My captive heart
    The torture victim.


    Breathe


    A thump in the chest
    flutter of eyelid
    a flicker in the wrist
    all set to deceive

    the human heart
    that contusion
    will freeze
    and we’ll go on
    and we’ll still breathe


    X


    I crudely boarded
    my door with an 'X'
    Rustic timber, basic
    and in the center
    of the spot I had marked
    a six inch nail
    through the beat
    of my heart

    So as I wander -
    for money or breaks -
    this poor town,
    somewhat blindly
    a path to my door
    you may beat,
    and there, always...

    … you will find me.

  2. "you may beat,

    … you will find me."

    Glad news, that...

    Oh how sublime;
    even before you start,
    within your art
    you find rhyme
    in words from the heart.
    And I find you
    tentative, but true...

    why did you choose an X I wonder as X marks the spot behind which you are hideing...

    its a fascinateing example of the emotions we suffer...we want so much to be able to talk about it to someone, but should they pry....ah well, we fear those corners....

    Xactly - a little cross of mystery.

    Odd the things that pop into one's mind. Who could say what I meant to say and what I may mean?

    I'm lost.
     
  6. "I'm lost."...

    Hardly...

    Ha ha..of course I am, FAL1.

    Were I not, would I be here at all?

    I must respond to your kind PM's, and will do so very soon. Just got a lot on at the moment.

    In this place I have discovered some of the most remarkable people. Truly, it blows my mind.

    hold on to these moments as they pass

    Just so you know, I'll be expecting a long one (but no pressure...!)(and no rush)
