My Haunting Heart


Poem Commentary

As poets - writers / authors; it is proven that most of the text that we put into permanent print follows what affects our lives, sometimes personally and in other instances what we are exposed to. Words are our weapons and letters form to express wonder. This poem was not an exprerience of mine that I was living out, it was written from activating certain mind processes after beginning to read a friend of mines novel - though now that I step back and look at it from a distance I can see many relationships to LIFE all around me. Haunting isn't it!?

My Haunting Heart

Why did you step on my beating heart as it lay there upon the floor


First you ripped it from my chest and as I was taking my last breath

You retreated to the place where there is no way back from eternal darkness


You will realize what you have done and though you have destroyed my heart, my soul remains

My death came at your hands and with a vengeance I will haunt your every breath


You cannot be rid of me; hear the beating of my heart with every step that you take

My spirit will forever walk in your dead footprints


Your only rest will be momentary as you seek the comfort of silent sleep

For when you dream my heartbeat will become your nightmares


As you wake there will be nowhere to run

Because over and over - the thump thump thumping of my heart will be beating louder in your brain


Until my pain subsides - as at last you grow wearily insane


.... What was it that caused the blood in your veins to grow so cold and heartless ...Can you now feel the hot blood that rages through my haunting heart!

I thought this was quite funny and it made me laugh out loud. That's okay, isn't it? I really enjoyed it a lot. I thought you should have him find a big bloody heart on his pillow...rather than a horses head...?? Loved it.



Oh yes I like your perspective - I enjoy the fact that you took a brighter look at the remorse and found a haunting humor in the subject. Thank you!!!

Marsink commented on My Haunting Heart


the graphic nature in descript words is what can be haunting: vengeance is served hot as the main course of vein's imagination, not on the side. It made me think of the Tell Tale Heart, by Poe



Your commentary speaks well of my words inflection! Thank you my friend.

If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.

Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) American poet.
