Springs Bleeding Heart

by Francine Rose Hirst


Spring evokes excitement.
I smell Spring.
I breathe Spring.

And yet.

Spring evokes sadness.
I remember good times.
I cry.

Spring evokes haunting.
Carefree days.
City lights at night.

Spring evokes life.
I watch as an outsider.
A hidden being.

Spring evokes love.
Too much.
I hurt.

Spring evokes passion.
Let me be.

Spring evokes hope.
It has no right.
Set me free.

Spring evokes kisses.
Sweet longing at night.
Mornings alone.

Spring evokes images of you.
Your life.
Shared so freely.

Spring please be over.
I can’t bare it.
Any longer.

My heart bleeds.
Spring’s joy is not mine.
This time.

What does Spring evoke for you? Do you have memories that haunt you? What is your happiest memory?

    For me it is about new beginnings, a shedding of the old and preparing for new growth. It is a lovely poem.

    Hi Vashti, love this poem, I agree with Yolanda, Spring definitely means new beginnings and out with the old in with the new, it is also bittersweet as I lost my Mum 19 years ago in April and it is also the Month I got married so highs and lows and hopefully more things to look forward to. Thank you so much Vashti for sharing Fran Rose’s poetry x x x

      Hi Jaye! I was happy to share it. It’s very inspiring and encouraging to think of spring this way. Wow, you’re not kidding––highs and lows. I hope this spring brings you nothing but high highs. 😀 xx

    Umm, spring cleaning? Just joking. Spring is trees laden with fresh green leaves, birds alighting in my balcony and squirrel babies scampering.
