Jaded Heart

Written for:  Poets and Storytellers United
Weekly Scribblings #88:  Equinox  (posted by Magaly)

"Today, I’ve selected three of my stitched blackout poem bits to offer as inspiration. I invite you to write poetry or prose which includes at least 1 of the following three."

Reason is music to a jaded heart.

Oh, the pain suffered
is not worth another
risk, she said.  Locked
that fragile organ, tossed
the key.  That was not
how it would be.  You see,
she heard opening notes
of her favorite piece
of music.  Hummed, despite
these past few months
when nothing was quite
right.  Clair de Lune 
floated, touched her
ears.  That is what
helped end her tears.


About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
