To Have a Heart

a forlorn face,

drunken gait,

glasses askew,

hair a perfect

place for sparrows

to rest,

mismatched slept-in

yesterday’s clothes,

but a heart

shining a little

too bright

to be bothered

by how grim

things look

from the outside

lets it slide

for a while

before it jumps in

to save a life!


“In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.”
Albert Camus

  1. Outstanding post, Aaysid! There are many things to love about your poem, Aaysid. I will share a few things: the visual created in the beginning of the poem, the line break after “perfect,” the phrasing, and the contrast (bright/grim). 🌟
