Not about me, written for a friend who's love life has so often ended in tears,but always bounces back somehow.

A Crippled Heart.

A heart so lost and underwraps
Is help in check and so perhaps
The love it holds may venture out
Into the world once more and shout
I am with beauty, I am with grace
Feel the fire within this face
From out the darkness burns a torch
This silent earth my touch will scorch
With talons sharp and flaming hair
Carress this heart of one so fair
Once touched its passion will unleash
A crippled heart begins to breathe.

Such a special message for a friend must lead once more to inspirartion!

I love the meter and the rhyme so much Graham...but again the way you combine the words makes it so uniquely you. A precious work for your friend.
