A Meeting

On one fateful night,
A lovely heart found love.
Fleeting, though it was,
It set this heart alight!

But the years, they passed.
And this heart, it turned.
A cold, blackened, stony shell,
A remnant; coursing through it, pure hell.

And so, ways were parted.
At first some contact;
Waning, scant, inconsistent.
It was the past once visited.

But the years, they passed.
And this heart, it grew.
Regaining color, pulsing.
Truly alive. Alive at last!

This future, however,
Is a magnificent thing; never appreciated.
It takes its time.
A full circle; circumstances rearranged.


After I wrote this, which was some time ago, I wasn't sure if I wanted this to be two parts or just one long poem. It's not like I was Tarantino finding out that Kill Bill was going to be two parts or anything, but the split approach seemed to work for me. I mean, it would kind of reflect the two parts of my life...or whatever. Well, the second part is the one above this (duh). It would probably be interesting, if at all that, if at this juncture I were to say that this is my life. Well, not in its entirety of course, but a certain segment of my life. But I guess I didn't have to say that. After all, if it's from the heart, then it's a given that I've been there eh?
