The heart that can’t love
is stunted by fear and hurt.
Laughter’s music transformed
from melody to dirge
for fallen expectations
of a cynical clown.

The rose that can’t bloom
fails to realize its potential.
Thorns become a nagging reminder
Of what could be.

Lost hope wets the pillow
as mornings fail to deliver.
The sun’s rays once glorified,
now signal more of the same
like a beacon to pain
as the heart grows cold.
