    Where will you Be?

    When I emerge from the shadows of the old Sycamore tree
    That was planted in the middle of heart break cemetery
    Where hearts come to die, and live among the dead to grieve?
    And mice come to live and creatures come to feast


    Where will you Be?

    When my heart rises from the forgotten dead
    To a Cold moon and black clouded sky overhead
    Where my eyes are down casted and my soul full of dread
    Looking for a new body to imbed
    Where the old church looks haunted, and the smell of flesh in the air
    Has disintegrated my hopes, and tossed them with out care
    Where my emotions have been clawed from wolves and brown bears
    And my spirit left dangling with their signature rips and tears


    Where will you be?

    When the sinister winds sweep through my empty rib cage
    Where no heart is home, the bones become insanely in raged
    Gnashing of teeth, and snarls from the grave
    A death wish from which no one can save
    A broken heart…. feeling unbrave

    Every trip to grave, is one step closer to the living
    To the one who wont kill me, to the one that is willing
    To breath new life into me, with compassion and giving
    Soothing words and tenderness, the ultimate healing.

    Where will you BE?

    Mornin' Sweet apple pie...

    Seeking the love of someone to resurrect a broken heart... relatable.


    Though descriptively dark, there was light at the end.

    A deeply emotional piece!

    Thank you Cocco.
    Emotional pieces remind me of where I've been, where I am at, and the understanding and strength to go on.

    Behind every dark cloud lead way to light of sunshine when the inner soul speaks out
    there is a release of relief from which we came to where we now stand to go forth.

    Again this one lingers deep in my mind

    You captured that bone chilling, sorrowful feeling. And yes there's that hope, that a kind loving soul can bring just the warmth that we need. Well posed scribe poetess.
