Heart… a poem

This granite heart is still hardening

After all that it’s been through

Please don’t waste your time on me

There is nothing you can do

Aged and cracked and dying

My heart will ever be this way

So, keep your words and promises

For someone else – for another day

No, don’t ask to be let in

You’ll only get depressed

The ragged, jagged edges here

Will slice your love to death

mountains covered with snow

How can you be so persistent – no

You can never believe in me

This heart of clay here in your hands

Now moldable and free

A clay stained hand of a potter engaging in a craft work of pottery or molding
