Poem -

but the heart one never owns

a revision.

But the heart
One never owns.
++++++++++++

Oh flame..
I thought you
Would've known,

that...

You can sell
1,000 angel souls!

(But the HearT
OnE neVer oWns.)

You dream the
Oddest
Midnight scenes..

though I've never
Seen
Your griM eyeS
Sleep!

A goddess true
In
Face, and form.

(haunted by
sad phantoms of
The deep.)

+

Today Times
Record seems
quite broken;

stuck on
Songs that
played before.

In a voice
Of
Days lost
and unspoken!

(dreamiNg of
HearTs it
Never owned
Before.)

Hey J.  I think I have experienced those haunting phantoms of the deep....Great perception piece that speaks to my heart.  The heart truly cannot be owned, but it can feel enslaved and not able to beat on its own....lol
Your poems are always so deep and intriguing...I see my own interpretations and feel a very complicated soul who writes prolific messages within them.  I love this one.  xo ;)
