Shattered






CARRY ON TUESDAY

The words to play with this week come from
Keats 'Ode To a Nightingale'

My heart aches and a drowsy  numbness pains my senses....


SHATTERED!


My heart aches and a drowsy numbness
Pains my senses through and through.
My love has left me and I wrestle
With the anguish flowing through...
Through my heart and very being
Like a poison in my veins,
All the love I had to give her
As a bitter taste remains.
Chloe! Chloe! Why desert me
Just when love was flowing free!
Chloe! Chloe! We were learning
Just how wondrous love can be!
I am weeping tears so scalding
That they burn my pallid cheeks!
I can hear your voice within me
And how cruelly it speaks!
*
I remember, last September
That Mandy Peters let me down!
*
Who's that coming through the doorway?
Yummy! Here comes Phoebe Brown!
*

Slightly more  shattered here:

I like your poem better. Even Keats would get a chuckle from it.

Heart rending and exhilerating.

Wash of emotion and passage of time.

Beautiful.
