Healthy

"Like a song I haven't heard in years,
It brings back memories;
All the laughter, all the tears,
And all the love time sees..."

Like a wish I never decided to make,
I got nothing at all.
So I never had to ache
And so I'm standing tall.

Like a voice I never ever used
It dies without a glance.
You said that your heart was abused,
And you never got a chance.

But I've seen too many broken souls
To let mine fall apart.
I'll stand aloof, and take no blows,
And there retain my healthy heart.

    Mine is still running a post behind, but it's probably one of those things that takes a little time to work out the bugs. I'll check back.

    1. There was some kind of problem with the image on my Fan Art post, and it showed up as a separate page, never appeared in the feed, and caused the ones after it to also not appear. But when I cleared the HTML, relinked the picture, and reposted it, I guess that fixed it. Weird.

  2. Any time I attempt poetry, it unusually turns out like this. Only yours feels more natural. Nice one, Rachel! :)

    1. Thank you. :)

      What do you mean, 'unusually'?
