The Wary Heart

Posted: August 9, 2020 in Uncategorized

My wary heart weeps
enthusiasm wanes we go on
I love you in theory
practice makes me weary.

I show you regard and consideration
exercise etiquette and good manners
trying to do what good loving cannot
but we spent it with laughter.

I was always doing things like that
funny bits amusing poses
satire suited perfectly for each occasion
if I cannot hug let me try to entertain.

You needed purity
I gave you a performance
a well-written play in three acts
I could not give you one honest moment.

    Very beautiful poem. Sounds like a bittersweet romance that melted away slowly. Great writing my friend.

    This has left me with a panging in my heart! A sign that it is true art.
