    wordwizard - Poetry Contest 20 Winner

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest Archives' started by Torana, Oct 3, 2007.

    wordwizard - Heart To Heart

    Her tears fall like silent glitter,
    sparkling in the afternoon sun.
    He takes her oval face
    gently in his time worn hands,
    tears mixing with blood.
    He places a simple last kiss
    upon her velvet lips.

    He wiped her silent tears,
    with his shaking hands.
    Her sorrow leaking from her heart,
    his spirit leaking from his soul.
    Each precious scarlette drop,
    holding a thousand deaths;
    that her heart will die when he is gone.

    A wound to the head,
    is not his only pain.
    A far greater wound to the heart,
    at what has to be left behind.
    A feud was fought.
    A debt to be paid.
    The cost... is his life.

    He leaves the world,
    his head falling to her blood stained chest.
    The waterfall drowning out the roaring in her head,
    and the screams of heartbreak from her lips.
    She slowly lays down with him in her arms.
    Knee to knee, hand in hand, lip to lip,
    Heart to heart.
