The Caged Heart

25 Mar




When it seems like all creation ends,

and memories cannot fill the emptiness

of an emotional soul.   Happiness

indescribable to the mind; love lives behind

a locked door, sealed shut.


To some love come easy and they just as easily

toss it away; many have survived without love;

with it, they could have blossomed and bloomed.

A caged heart is always trying to escape, to be

found, waiting for time to stand still love to

encircle their soul and rejoice.


If the heart can remember one unforgettable time,

a time it loved without a reason or distrust; embrace

it for this thought may never come again, do not

question the heart…why.







thBPHSKA15“Life is short, live it. Love is rare, grab it. Anger is bad, dump it. Fear is awful, face it. Memories are sweet, cherish it.”

    there is no creature that GOD has made has ever been born in a cage , not a bird , not an animal
    and surely not love.
    everything in life was born to be free .

    My great aunt Marie lived over 90 years yet only had one 10 year long marriage. She would adhere to this idea that those sweet years, although short lived, were enough joy for her lifetime. I wrote about 30 love stories on my blog, hers was one of them, Elizabeth. 🙂
