Human Heart

Madison M., Shamong, NJ By shunflower, Shamong, NJ

Similar to that of the human heart are
tight, concealed crypts of
love and darkness.

There is of course, some irony in this
for what kind of heart
contains polar opposites?

Surely you'd find only the lovely synonyms;
golden cherubs
a sky filled with stars
sweet morning coffee
during a winter of sparkling snow.

But a heart is not all happiness;
to become something worth loving
it must be
and alone.

A heart must contain darkness
(to an extent)
