Excerpt- Cracked Heart
My heart is cracked, as the warmth of my love starts to seep through the wounds of my heart it is being replaced by the chills of the cold wind forming tiny icicles along the openings of the cracks. The warm song of my heart is being replaced with the cringing howl of the wind, the howl that carries the message of hurt and brokenness. My heart was once full but now it is hollow allowing the howl of the wind to echo through my empty chambers of my heart as it becomes the Grim Reaper, blowing away any fragments of shattered memories and hope.
My heart that was once Summer is now Winter, Autumn was skipped which has resulted in my heart not being able to adapt to the rapid drop in temperature and now has the appearance of a glittering glass web spun by the black widow spider of hurt. The cracks shimmer from the light dancing off the icicles as the light tries to leave an encouraging promise of hope… hope that my heart will beat again. My heart is so empty that the emptiness creates a burden of heaviness that slows down the beat of my heart to a loud thump.
Winter brings about comfort of rest, I need to rest now in hibernation. I will rebuild what is broken, revive what it dead and fill what is empty, this will take time. The Winter season of my heart will eventually pass into Spring allowing my heart to adapt to the increase in temperature and no longer resemble the cracked glass of sadness.
