Poem: Heartstring Moments

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Heartstring moments is a poem about someone from her past contacting her. For a brief moment she remembers touching moments the two of them shared. As a tug of war ensues within her heart she realizes she doesn't want to repeat the mistakes from the past.

Heartstring Moments

Voices left behind

knock upon the door,

secretly haunting her with images

of moments once forgotten.


For a brief second,

a sparkle of happiness

comes across her face,

guiding her heart

towards stars touched

so many moons ago.


A tug of war

plays on her heartstrings,

convincing her not to slip backwards

repeating her past mistakes.
