Fragility of the Heart…

I have travelled the road of shame

Not once and not twice

I lost my confidence on this highway

And couldn’t raise my head to gaze at the sun

I buried myself in mortified agony

Engulfed in a bout of sadness

With a heavy pang in my heart

My mind couldn’t fathom the reason

Why everything seems to go all wrong

Why every step I took ended in pain

It was love that first dealt me a severe blow

When his deception became my delusion

What’s with humanity?

Nobody cares about others emotions

As they unleash the demons that dwell inside them

And punctures the dignity that once was held

The impact of these recurrent vices

Rises to a crescendo every day

And tears my heart apart

And leaves me befuddled

Empathy lives far away in the animal kingdom

‘Cos humans have become too busy to notice the flaws

No one appears to care anymore

No one understands the fragility of the heart

Nobody gives a damn about this sacrilege

That infuses hurtful venoms into the human psyche

Stop these vicious acts

That burst the heart in acute anguish

 Stop these gruelling infernos 

Spare the world another mental tornado


Submitted for the Daily Prompt – Infuse.

Peace and Love!

    1. I wish more people will show empathy in their dealings with others. I guess the world will be a better place but until then… Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your Sunday rice and stew, lol. 🙂
