To the Roots of the Heart

To the heart

To the roots

To the roots of the heart

The very deepest, loneliest, hidden part of the


The unexplored, messy, unkempt, uneven, sorf part of the


This is no right ventricle or aorta

There is no blood flowing

This is the soul of the heart

Happy, sad, mad do not exist here

Exbruent, dejected, rage exist here

No feelings exist here

Emotions do

No shallow, lukewarm, share your feeling

exist here

Here, is the part of all of us that only you and the almighty God above know

No spouse, child, friend, parent knows

These emotions




Self – contained


To the heart

To the roots

To the roots of the heart

I’m trying out the everyday post a poem for the month of April put on by NaPoWriMo.

  1. I really enjoyed reading this poem. It was simple but washed me over with a stronger feeling. It was really raw and I loved the terminology. Unexplored, messy, and unkempt were a perfect word choice for description.

  2. I love the repetition in this poem. It almost seems to mimic the heartbeat. I’m also very excited you are participating in NaPoWriMo. I’ll be checking in over Spring Break. Feel free to check in on my work too! 🙂
