Lost a Piece of Heart and Soul

Yahoo Image Search

They had a place
Settled in your chest
Adjusting your beats
And nurturing the soul
Existences entwined
Allies in life
And now you are alone
*
A mix of pain
And numbness
Denial may rear its head
Along with anger
And despair
Left to limp through life
Like a wounded beast
*
Time is said to heal
It never says how long
A week for some
Years for others
Never is an option
Life has been shaken
From your insides
*
A beating heart
That does not feel whole
An invisible soul
Marked with a scar
Signs of loss and pain
Earned throughout life
Which all will wear

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.
