the black heart


the black heart of stone

pumps black blood into 

the blackened veins

tireless day after day


it used to be fiery red


felt feelings deeply

knew love very well


now transformed

doesn’t want to feel 

anything anymore

fills up only on hate


it changed a long time ago

hurt too many times

lost hope

forever petrified


beats in strong rhythm

listening to the whispers

of black shadows

evil spirits from the past

pouring hate into the heart


black heart listens

remembers well

works hard determined

to never get hurt again

Sad and moving.
This is what life can do.
A brave and emotional piece.

Very glad to hear that you have a fiery red heart Anya - I thought it would be the case, but didn't want to ask just in case.

Should be applied to a wall to be remembered for all time and constantly read in public. Another great piece Anya, very well done.👍
