Treasonous Heart


-By Linda Lee Lyberg

Treason is a blow that comes unexpectedly
Heart, its dreams and wishes

Never fear
Listen to heart, heart, hearts become fearful
Moments could have been good
Treasures might have been found
Forever hidden
Look up at the moonless sky
No heart has ever suffered
When it goes in search of its dreams.
Linda Lee Lyberg


Original text is The Alchemist, by Paulo Coelho 

Today, Victoria is hosting at dVerse poets pub and has presented a wonderful challenge.  Some blackout or erasure poetry.
