Weathered Hearts & Souls

Weathered Hearts & Souls

written by: H.M. Gautsch



A dreary day of such a powerful soul
the downpour of these tears
the pounding aches
trying to break through the chest
from the sharpness of our words

broken glass sheared into our hearts
just to crack through the evidence
bleeding out the love
that hides from within fear
the weather symbolizes

a revelation of our commitment
to our lives and to ourselves
