My Bleeding Heart (Lady’s)


For the footprints

that walked in and you erased,

lament not!

My heart was worn out

by the many chances given

only to be replaced by One

less deserving.

To watch the person I loved

choose so unwisely,

I guess the same love was

to blame for your other match.

We did depart amicably,

with heart in hand,

I meandered with

my small footprints,

never to meet again.

I would lie

if I said I cared not

for your afflictions

of a bleeding heart.

I would wash off

the blood with my tears

were you near.

To love you

and bear witness

to your pain,

leaves me drained.

Smile my Darling,

as the waters lap

against the shores off Scotland,

I feel you.

I feel your sadness

I feel your bleeding heart

as it bleeds like mine.
