The Call: Tattered Heart-Christine/Brave and Reckless

Today we are bringing you another a Call and Response from Christine/Brave and Reckless and Chuck/The Reluctant Poet.


i am a faded, tattered

valentine

pinned to a dusty bulletin board

a thumb tack

piercing my heart

partially covered by

photographs of smiling new faces

and perky motivational sayings

only bits and pieces of me

still visible in the montage

the sentiments I carried

that you once treasured

enough to put me here

with loving hands

in a place of honor

now forgotten

why do you leave me here

hanging alone?

  1. Christine, you have so many wonderful poems that I love but listening to your voice and words in this poem, again, makes me root for it to be in your top 20! Loved this so much and even more because your words inspired my heart to write from this wonderful seed of inspiration. Bellissimo, Christine, Bellissimo!!
    Chuck
