Tender Heart of Stone


I have been blocked Internally

I am unable to love normally

I am trying to heal

but its taking its tole

My tender heart has turned to stone

I am trying to love yet there is nothing to look for

The anguish…the pain…oh so much more

You must see what is happening to me

I wish i was free to love your way

But “Free” is not coming my way

I dont know what more I can  say

Logic seems to dictating my way

  1. Nicely told.
    It seems that way in so many cases.
    The poem has a hardened tone.
    But that makes it all the more interesting

  2. take your time to heal.. the grieving process is a long and winding road. don’t rush into anything. your poem has beautifully expressed your pain.
