    Tears of the Heart

    Oh despondent heart seek yourself to heal
    Close your sad eyes to all abhorrent crimes
    You must endeavor your skin to anneal
    Against attempted assaults of the times

    Your tears shed have fallen on barren soil
    Your pitiable gaze discarded swiftly
    All your efforts to love honestly, foiled
    The strain on you has been very costly

    Yet
    there remains hope within these walls of pain
    Hope that if you die , you shall live again
    Deep desire, inextinguishable flame
    To be cherished and affection regain

    The hurt and hope so passionately expressed. Love this, AG!
    Nourish the inextinguishable flame (not by drinking lighter fluid, though).

        Yourself would work as well as thyself in the first line. Thyself seems lonely among all the yours and yous, and may welcome release to her time machine 😉

        Although 'physician heal thyself' springs to mind too, as it stands.

        Six and half-dozen situation.

          Yes I thought so too. It started one way and it went a different way and it was late and I fell asleep. Thank you - I appreciate your direction and insight Grant.
