Seek Not My Heart

Oh gentle winds 'neath moonlit skies,
Do not you hear my heartfelt cries?

Below the branches, here about,
Do not you sense my fear and doubt?
Side glistening rivers, sparkling streams,
Do not you hear my woeful screams?

Upon the meadows, touched with dew,
Do not you see my hearts a'skew?
Beneath the thousand twinkling stars,
Do not you feel my jagged scars?

Seek not my mournful heart kind breeze,
For you'll not find it 'mongst these trees.

It's scattered 'cross the moonlit skies,
Accompanied by heartfelt sighs.
It's drifting o're the gentle rain,
A symbol of my silent pain.

It's buried 'neath the meadow fair,
Conjoined with all the sorrow there.
It's lost among the stars this night,
Too far to ease my quiet fright.

No gentle winds, seek not my heart,
For simply ... it has torn apart.

it really brought emotions with the land its heartfelt and understandable the chose of words were a spark of interest and it just brought out the beauty of the land along with the sadness of a welted heart

I think this was beautifully written. The language and metaphors were interesting. It actually hit home as I know that pain of a broken heart and you did an excellent job of capturing that. The fragments of a heart, mortally wounded by love, now lost amids the earth, winds and heavens. Great stuff.

This poem really touched me cause i am in 5th grade and one of my freinds got mad at me and i dont know why and she is doing all these bad things to me i am just trying to stay calm and not take revenge. The poem describes how i would talk to her and how i feel inside. i even sent her an email with the poem on it to tell her how i feel. And i hope that we can be freinds agin.
