My heart does not know how to beat

While sadness surrounds you

It cannot see through

The darkness of your storm 


It cannot find its rhythm

While its mate is in pain

Desperately seeking a way

To find you and save you


But it cannot

It can only stand still

Hope that through chaos

You will see it bleeding love for you

  1. Red…I can only imagine where this comes from. But, somehow I know it comes from a deep, deep place in your soul. I know the poet meant it from his soul to yours.
    Hearts will go on….

  11. not just for u honey… this poem means a lot to all of us… I think all will agree with that 🙂

    loved the poem =)

    heard ur heart beat 😉

  12. These words really touch me – it’s so true that sometimes we can only stand and watch loved ones whilst they are in pain. Equally, we cannot always see (if ever) into the hearts of others…nor can people see inside us…and it’s worth remembering that everyone has pain that we can’t see. So, we should treat people gently!

  13. Those words are beautiful 🙂 This poem is very touching 🙂

  17. Such a beautiful and powerful poem, especially the ending. All we can do is love and hope that the person we love sees it. It is so painful when someone we love is in pain.

  18. It can only stand still, hoping you will see it bleeding love for you

    What a powerful image – as we all know, when our dearest ones suffer, we can’t take their pain away,
    their pain becomes ours, yet we can’t burden them with more – we can only love and wait beside them.

    Beautiful poem.

  19. Beautiful, melancholy words.

  20. Your words move my soul! What more could I ask for in this moment. Thank-you.
