King of Hearts

King of Hearts short poem

I toss and turn but there is no sleep to be found

Body is aching, exhausted but there is no rest

Working to make ends meet but the mind escapes

Am I here at a wrong time and at a wrong place?

I plough through scriptures but there’s no grace

I know a wise word or two but that won’t suffice

Been strong to hold my fort but it keeps crumbling down

Is the heart beating or is just an old clock that tick-tocks

Two paragraphs of melancholy won’t drown your joy.

What you don’t deny me and what you generously give

A few words of happiness and a hearty honest laugh

Much is made of wants & needs, a little bliss is just enough

There are distances but the heart still fondly reminisces

Mirrored images are closer than you think they are

Situations do change, the goodness in you remains same

Acquaintances are plenty but there is only one You.

Incredible and unbelievable may sound to those ears

Maybe be a bit too sweet for your taste and palate.

There are those that come to your life and leave in a haste

You’re the king of hearts and that’s where you always remain

Hearts Are Stars

Hearts are stars lost in a tango- between the moon and the sun. Stuck between parallel worlds- they only shine to a smiling moon only to die for a burning sun. Love is an eclipse of a sparkling moon standing
