Heart in a Jar on a Shelf

 

I've got my heart in a jar on a shelf

It sure didn't get there by itself

I've put it there so you can't steal it

I sure would miss it but i won't feel it

 

If it gets dirty, I'll just take it out

a pure healthy lifestyle without a doubt

Polish it up with warm turpentine

let it cool down in a glass of red wine

 

There's something about this hole in my chest

It itches, it talks, it won't give me some rest

It says to me: "Fill me with stone! Fill me with stone"

Talks like every one else with muscle and bone

 

I keep my heart locked up, just for safe keeping

I'm counting the tears that my brain is weeping

Mysterious are the ways, isn't that sweet?

Still I'm relying on this piece of meat

 

What if it lies?! What if it knows it?!

 

At least I know where I got it

This was truly indescribably good.

Especially liked this stanza:


There's something about this hole in my chest

It itches, it talks, it won't give me some rest

It says to me: "Fill me with stone! Fill me with stone"

Talks like every one else with muscle and bone

A very interesting piece of poesy! Yes, one way of avaoiding pain is to lock away your heart deep into your self... but then sometimes, when you least expect it, it suddenly is stolen, no matter how much care you take to keep it saafely tucked away...
A very original piece indeed!
Welcome to the bay from my side dear Line! How is it that I missed such a good poet uptioll now. The loss is mine.
(((Hugs)))
Love, Zoya
