A HEART THAT BEATS SO COLD: a poem by ed




Why do you grieve for a man
who would ask you out for breakfast
and then take you to a motel
with a sign on it for a free breakfast?

Why do you go on in such pain
when it would be so easy to end
a soul that never sees the sun
and a heart that beats so cold.

Don’t speak to me of some
higher noble purpose as the reason
you were left behind to suffer alone
without the one who made you whole.

Even if that were so
you do not believe it
and it gives your soul
not one small bit of solace.

The truth is you will not
be whole again until
he takes you out on another
wild man adventure in the heavens.
