Hidden Heart

Twist 
turn 
curve around
make sure to follow
left
right
not north
not south
or never shall I be found.
Heart of the maze
surrounded by thorns
kept in a casket.
Hidden deep beneath
safeguarded
dragon’s hoard
escape from
hide from
pain
that cripples
blackens my sight.
Tip toe
brutal cold
mist arises
coating stairs with ice
another maze
hidden dangers.
You shall never know my plight.
Deep within this fort
made of bone
made of blood
made of stone
a sarcophagus
etched with acid
tears
grief…..
my heart is hidden 
safe from promises
safe from love
safe from a world 
harboring no illusions
never again
will I love.

A single hard working mom of a soon to be teenage son. A poet and story teller I have wanted to write since I was a child. This space is where I share stories about myself and my life and the creative poetry that stirs my soul. My hope is you will pull up a chair and a cup of coffee delving into the world that I offer and you find simple enjoyment for a few moments. Welcome to The Wonderful & Wacky World of One Single Mom
