Let Bleeding Hearts of the World Unite!

Let bleeding hearts of the world unite!

Drenched in sorrow,

only those whose

hearts have been shredded

dare apply.

Deep calls to deep,

affliction meets misery,

grief grows rapport

like a second skin,

fitted like misfortune’s glove.

Heartache’s brine

seasons souls scrupulously

and breeds empathy

that is released,

spores of mercy,

descending like dew

on bleeding hearts of the world.

Let them all unite!

    I love this, of course–my 2 fave phrases are “rapport like a second skin”, and “misfortune’s glove”. Great work–and I do believe my application will be accepted. God bless you–love, Caddo

    Ooh, Melody waxes especially melodious with this one. Sweetness and liberality drawn taut between the poles of hope and brokenness.

    Well shucks, that’s a great idea.

    I think I’ll get started, e’en though we’ve departed.
    To that end I go,
    much more word play to show;
    then no one can call me retarded…(how am I doing so far?)
