Heart Shaped

favorite ring πŸ˜€ heart-shaped Ruby (Photo credit: Rubyran)

She wore a heart-shaped ring
On her middle finger
In dusty coffee shops
She would dream and linger
She was just a song
Sung by another singer
Wearing her heart-shaped ring
On her middle finger

She had a heart-shaped sign
On her vintageΒ t-shirt
It matched the blood, blood-red
Of her peasant skirt
As though these were talismans
Saving her from hurt
Her heart-shaped sign
On her vintageΒ t-shirt

She has a heart-shaped scar
Deep within her soul
And it never will heal
And she’ll never be whole
Despite all the virtues
That her fashion extolled
She wears her heart-shaped scar
In her heart-shaped soul.

    What can I say.. Any words of appreciation wouldn’t fully describe how I feel about this..
    Have a heart-shaped heart ❀

  3. Such a powerful poem. I really liked that last stanza. Makes me wonder what could create a heart-shaped scar.

    Poor soul, she is hopeful in her usage of the heart emblem but her life is so miserable. Too bad, you have written this so I can feel this woman’s heartbreak and pain. Great writing skills!
