November 5th, 2009 by Karen

My heart screams in anger
caught in the web of deceit
thrashing against the barbs
bleeding like so many times before.

Never again! It rages like a caged beast
beating itself senseless against the bars
knowing its futile vows are just that
useless against the inevitable.

Scuffed and bruised,
torn and bloodied
in the gutter of its own making.
