My Heart's in Lost and Found

Hey! It's six word fridays again! Today, Melissa has assigned us the word "found." Her format draws six word lined poems out of me, and here is mine for today. Please look on my sidebar for six word fridays and click on the little tools to go to Melissa's blog. You will be amazed at what you find there!

My heart's in Lost and Found
just where I do not know.
I had it with me when
you died, or did I? Maybe
you took it on your final
journey, forgot to send it back.

It was yours alone, for sure
as I gave it to you those
many years past in the heat
of our new love, the fire
of new passion and youthful lust.

I miss my heart as I
do you, my one true love.
Please come back and bring it.
Oh, I know you can't do
that. You can't come back, but
could you leave my heart in
my dream one night, a kiss
out of darkness on my breast,
the flutter of its beating restored?

I like this little poem and can feel the love it expresses so well. The image of leaving your heart in a dream is beautiful.

(I like the 6-word thing, too. I should go check it out sometime.)

Oh, CJ. This is beautiful.
And wrenching and loving and brave.
Thank you for sharing it today...

I love your collection of words
I felt the pain and hope
Hope that your heart will return
In a dream, such beautiful imagery.
A way with words.... you have!
