Days of the Suffering Heart

Everything is fine so
Why so much pain?
What brings the anguish
That lives in my heart?

How I wish for just a few
Days of peace and joy
A few
    Days of love
    A few
        Days of passion
        A few
            Days of a sheltering heart

But those days, if ever they come,
Are not these days
These are the days
Of the suffering heart

You Look

You look so much like
Someone I truly love.
What is it that brings
Such confusion —
What – bringssuch confusion?

My heart wants to love you
Like I love my friend, my heart
My truth, but you
Are not she. So clearly, lookour hearts are
Not reliable, You only looklike

Still, my heart moves
My heart wants
My heart loves
So, unwisely,
Yet still, my heart loves.
