Bury Me, Without A Heart...

Bury Me, Without A Heart...

I may live again, but I won't feel,ย 
As I lay gentle, heart missing,
In this coffin, death is no prison,
I walk on the cracks, it's uncomfortable,
Burdened, feeling trapped, it's unsociable,
Under stone, boxed in the dark,
Bury me, without a heart,
I don't want to live, if living is to be consumed,
I promise to survive, if not for me, then be it for you,
Time...
I spend wandering other people's stories,ย 
Time...
It may carry on, but I'll be sheltered by roses,
Beneath blades of grass, my vessel shall lay,
Crimpled leaves, dry as the body, in the soiled grave,ย 
No dancing around, nor will I breathe,ย 
The cog has dried, I just want peace,
Under stone, boxed in the dark,
Bury me, without a heart,
Keep it for the lonely,
Give it to the heartless,
Tell the grave digger,
This man is now helpless,
I feel guilty of trying to help,
I'm just dragging them down, to my hell,
Its hard for the broken, to just accept,
A man like me, I've been hurt, I just want to protect,
I mean no harm,
There's a price?
I pay the reaper to stay away,
Sacrifice?
Normal days are an aching pain,
What's wrong with me?
Not everybody, wants to be saved!
I can't help it,
I haven't got a life,
It's just the way I live my days,
But...
Now the time has came,
Under stone, boxed in the dark,
Bury me, without a heart,
In my next life, I won't handle the same,
In my next life, I can't handle the pain,

So,

I ask you to bury me,
Bury me, Without a heart,
To beat again,ย 
To feel again,

I just can't...

Hola brother!! I hope you're doing well sir! A heavy heart is a heavy soul, one which he doesn't want to carry onto the next life, as a mortal, one wishes to leave all his overwhelming feelings behind him, in the hope he can live his next life in peace, as his life he lives previous was too much for his heart, every day, living, walking, breathing, was too much, it was unbearable, he doesn't want to live another life with a heart, the same as he has had because he felt too much pain constantly, hope this helps, Tony ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘

Hi Wayne.ย  Very sad imagery....It can seem so difficult in life to live with pain and the prospect of death without a heart may seem easier to deal with....Who would want to arise to pain.....Very sad imagery and I liked your picture.ย  I miss reading your work.....Original.ย  xo ;)

Thanks very much for saying so, the weird thing is Cherie, I've never felt better than the way I have lately, for the past 6 or 7 year, Cosmofunnel and my own poetry site, Northern Poetry has helped me so, so much in orchestrating my own emotions into realism and how to deal with reality, you, Tony, Tina, Nigel, Neil, and a few others are a key part in building my new me, and I thank you for this, I've never felt better; all that I write lately is poetic license and a little bit of fun, which is a new challenge for me; and weirdly enough, I'm not writing as much, happy heart less thoughts, who knows, anyway, enough of me rambling on, thanks for your input and your social friendship, hope you and Tony are doing well ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’œ
