‘But I will wear my heart upon my sleeve’
“Othello” – William Shakespeare
Misery and hate are a girl’s best friend when nuancing
Thoughts with dearest Iago. Emotions easily overtake
The senses and created a trying motif to look
Past. However, times can call for a change that may
Upset the world floating evangelically around
Your one sided longings. It is treacherous to leak out
The secrets you thought were secured to your sleeve,
But wanton pride must always be kept intact when
It is done. Weep your tears of uncertainty
And prepare to undo the feelings that were once
A birthplace for joy. The time for a sorrowfully sweet goodbye
Must be now and you cannot deny it any further. Brush
A shaky hand down your arm and sweep away
The remnants of that dream turned upside down.
– Carol Fisher
