Misshapen Heart of Lights

Caroline is an artist, designer and writer. She has written for several online and print publications.


A misshapen heart

Twinkles from afar

Full of specks

Of light

Each telling a

Different story

In between the

Dark spots

Each light

A star full of fire

In a vast universe

When you look closer

You remember those stories

Close to your heart

They remain

Each representing

A little brightness

Amongst the darkness

Hello Lorna! Thank you so much for your comment and kind words. I hope you are well and safe as well. :)

Hello Rinita! Thank you so much! That is such an amazing compliment! I hope you are well and healthy. :)

Hello John! Thank you so much for the kind words and critique. Stay safe. :)

Hello Kyler! Haha it's funny you say that. It's a mix of both! But it is funny that the rainy day affected the way you viewed the poem. Thank you and I hope you are safe and stay healthy. :)

I have to inquire as to whether or not you wrote this in a feeling of bittersweet nostalgia, or in lifted spirits?

I get a really melancholy feeling from this one. It is as if you are wandering through the darkness between those little flickering lights, trying to find your way back to their warm glow. Then again, its a rainy day and I'm always projecting my own meanings onto everything.

No matter what, a lovely piece.
