See Things For What They Can Be

One, Missing Pieces

Once in time past,
The heart did do the flutter.
It romanced the spirit of love.
That was once upon a time.

How does the heart remember,
It’s swirling in love
Beating the beat in rhythmic

The heart did dance
It’s joyous dance with delight.
For it knew once before
That feeling,

When all the pieces
Were in place to fulfillment,
Yes, when all the pieces
Were in place.

The reason, reasons 
The pieces no longer make an item

Where did it go?

The heart does not like
Nor accepts the fate
It finds itself.

The heart wants, no
Needs love to have
That feeling of completeness,
To make it a finished item.

It may take time, 
The heart is aware.
Flutter?… it longs for,
Dance?…it wants, to no end.


Wishing this could happen
In a snap, the heart  
Accepts facts…for now,
It is one, missing pieces. 

It’s One Shot Wednesday time….let’s head on over…
