Poem: I Felt My Heart Ache

I felt my heart ache, when you and I part:
I wanted you stay close, and hope deep love last,
Both in the sacred place, of our dearest heart:
Yet, it was only a dream, a wish, an image,
A masterpiece, I created, like an outstanding art:
That I’ve seen, someplace else, in a high profile museum;
Displaying its magnificent piece, in someone else’s heart: 
I’d wish it was me, from the beginning and ending,
And you would fill this void heart, 
With your truth, passion, that you promise,

Right from the start: 
And honor, respect, unveil—your beauty;
As I become aware, to grow, to be worthy, of your love,
Is the lesson to learn, to win your heart:

So, I must begin this love, with me—for you,

As I restart!

About the author


This bio will be short. I am a graduate of Medgar Evers College. Mother of three and grandmother. I love to read and write poetry.

To those who have been a great support in reading my website and those who just came across this poetry this will be the ending of my poetic journey for now. I hope there will be a new chapter in my life that will be a success and inspired people to be far better in their thoughts, words and deeds. I am working on myself and it’s been hard.... yet I am getting there. When I began my poetry, I felt so deeply inspired. Now when I write I just write (feeling burned out of all that has occurred and is occurring) and I am feeling as if my poetry isn’t moving in the manner that I feel it should because I have not place myself in a position to be active reading my poetry at live venues for my own personal reason. I wanted to thank those who took the time to read my poetry especially my love ones. Thank you for being on the journey with me. Peace and blessings.
