Rusty hearts all over the streets

post by:Siji

Worn and tired, to the streets they all file

Looking for something to hold on to.

Something to dissolve this crust that’s seized their hearts

Desperate for love they make their way to the streets, Beaten and bruised

Refusing to become calcified by the memories of their past lovers

still hopeful they seize the day and own the night

never stopping to rest, never giving in to the dry and dense feeling.

never acknowledging the reddish-brown within their hearts.

Matching forward like soldiers on a parade

Looking through every window for signs of warmth

Consumed by their thirst for what once was

Gnawed by their want of what used to be.

Rusty hearts claim the streets.

At dawn, at dusk, winter or summer

Their fretful hearts claim the streets.
