Love, romance /
How beautiful it is
to be able to leave a piece of your heart
With everyone you've ever held dear.
Every soul walking this Earth
is carrying so much more than their own stories,
their own hopes and fears.
Unbeknownst to you
Voyageurs have embodied themselves in your heart,
taking up room.
Filling the missing pieces
left behind by the love you've given away.
A masterpiece has been created
deep in the depths where we've kept our despair.
From last kisses and bittersweet goodbyes,
their strokes have painted something so exquisite
yet so obscure.
And so we walk on by,
eyes blind to the kaleidoscopic dance of hearts
exchanging bits and pieces when we linger...
If only we could see
how such sadness has created such beauty; such magic.
The strokes that have painted your heart
are now and forever decorating mine.
Touching the hearts of others, the interplay, unknowingly at times. This is beautifully composed all lines in the stanza relating and connecting to the initial. Glad if the front page displayed this.
Thank you for your kind words, I'm glad you enjoyed it.
a beautiful embodiment of 'sonder', well done!
I just looked up this word. Definitely adding it to my vocabulary!
