Heart Drop

The inkwell of my heart
Has broken open
Falling into bloody
Fragments
Reaching out
To Lady Liberty
But finding no comfort
Cold tears
Fall like diamonds
Onto the cracking earth
Below my feet
Exuberantly drinking
Down the fraught uncertainty
Chased with sodden
Fears

By Ashley Houston

This is the poem I wrote for today’s VSS365. The word prompt is exuberantly.
