Rare Heart

Unlucky hearts grow black
as time withers their beats
Most beat a plump red,
the dull thrum of an ordinary life
But gold lines the veins of the rare
their energy an encompassing vibration
It colors their world, enticing
the rarest heart of all,
one that sees beyond a shiny finish
to love and nurture
instead of siphon and wither

Gone

And just like that he was gone
Though he’d sometimes walked
in literal circles around me,
frustrated me here and there
with endless questions and energy
when I wanted nothing more
than a quiet moment,
I missed it all
in the deafening silence
he left in his wake.
