Stone Hearts

Sorry for being away from this blog for so long. I write the poems as they come to me; very rarely do I do "assignment" type poems. This particular one started on a particularly stressful day and I completed it this evening. Feedback is appreciated.

Stone Heart

Sharp nails piercing fragile skin
Revealing pain hidden deep within.
Blood pouring out just like rain
Spilling free as the cotton fields wane.
Dead to life no more to live
Its hardened stone no more to give.
No one sees the scars she hides
Palms kept closed, shielding the heart inside.

  1. Very nice imagery. I like that you know what's going on even though the poem is short. I like you tend to only write when the MOOD strikes, not a big assignment poet. I have a poetry blog here
