she cannot heal your bleeding heart

August 17, 2010

she cannot heal your bleeding heart;
she bleeds inside as well.
she smiles to hide her scarlet scars,
to hide her inner shell.

it does not make her any less
in beauty or esteem.
instead they show her loveliness
as real and not a dream.

the tear that makes her all the more
desired and valuable,
is also why you can not hoard
her for your selfish soul.

so let her play the part of Grace
and you, the beggar king,
who cannot earn her kindly face,
but rather all her stings.

for greatest pangs of poverty,
are not in pompous shows
but when the rich in charity
and mercy kiss her blows.
