Short Sad Poem

You never know the state of someone’s heart. Aching hearts may not look broken, but you have no idea what’s gone into that healing. Be kind, always.

Aching Hearts

Published by Family Friend Poems December 2020 with permission of the Author.

We talk a lot about broken hearts.
But oh,
what about the aching ones?
The hearts that are healing
but can’t escape the visits of the
cold, sharp
pain gripping their core.
The hearts that appear
whole again
but still experience
the waves of hurt
crash against their soul’s door.
