Here’s an oldie! It’s one of the first poems I wrote after I got bit by the writing bug. Luckily I’ve improved since then (at least I hope I have).
Lucy, don’t shed your tears for me
I have no heart
Can’t you see?
I live in a world of stone
It’s to cold for your trails of gold
So forget me as I hide
And know you’ll never get inside
I built the wall too strong
It’s of my own design
Made to keep love outside
So hurry, Lucy, leave
The snow is coming, go in peace
Forget you ever knew me
Flee this cold, this unrepentant snow
Go follow the sun, it knows how to love
Leave me to my crimes
To these hollow bones of mine
Run, my dear, and never look behind.
