Poet Lady Katz: new forum reply to Journey of Love by Bella

New reply from Susan Katz

<p>Thank you, Bella, for sharing this beautiful poem.  And it is, a beautiful poem – filled with imagery, internal rhyme, intensity, emotional investment, and a message that touches one deeply.  I know the reluctance to share your heart with others, but it just may touch them in a way that connects them and makes them stronger.  Great job.  Great poem.  I am so glad you chose to share it with me, Susan</p>

Journey of Love by Bella

<p>It’s hard, so hard to show my weakness. My heart cripples when I think of someone reading it.</p>
<p> </p>
<p class="p1"><span class="s1">Let your heart beat and your hope breed,</span></p>
<p class="p1"><span class="s1">A fire in the rain lights itself to be</span></p>
<p class="p1"><span class="s1">the light in the bottomless wreck,</span></p>
<p class="p1"><span class="s1">the tender warmth in the unknown sea.</span></p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p class="p1"><span class="s1">A guiltless venture, a flourishing seed,</span></p>
<p class="p1"><span class="s1">Through the holes in the glass you see</span></p>
<p class="p1"><span class="s1">a time beyond the fate concealed,</span></p>
<p class="p1"><span class="s1">a string tied to the Garden of Dreams.</span></p>
<p class="p1"><span class="s1"> </span></p>
<p class="p1"><span class="s1">Happiness noticed in rare eyes, gleams </span></p>
<p class="p1"><span class="s1">like the sun that casts a shadow upon all evil,</span></p>
<p class="p1"><span class="s1">like a child that begs to be noticed, so unlike</span></p>
<p class="p1"><span class="s1">greed that shoulders a heavy burden.</span></p>
<p class="p1"><span class="s1"> </span></p>
<p class="p1"><span class="s1">A story told, a burden removed,</span></p>
<p class="p1"><span class="s1">Tick-tock, your heart weighs upon</span></p>
<p class="p1"><span class="s1">the smile so predictable, the step forward,</span></p>
<p class="p1"><span class="s1">But if it all goes wrong, then boom</span></p>
<p class="p1"><span class="s1"> </span></p>
<p class="p1"><span class="s1">your hearts breaks into tiny pieces of glass.</span></p>
