Misshapen Heart


A colourful question

Of a misshapen heart
You wanted sweet sympathy
Instead of giving sweet charity
You disguised the lines, traced the pencil marks in fine
These skies, too much of a beautiful surprise
Exposed the displaced denial in your eyes
A wasted song
Composed by misshapen heart too long
You disregarded all purpose apart from loneliness
For which I was your quiet comforter
Misshapen heart, convincing guise of a dreamer
You could never cherish the heart of a believer…
A colourful question
Of a misshapen heart
Still and unanswered
Barely beating, only breathing…
Your sole source of art…
