 Elsie`s Poetry



I cannot pretend that my heart is unused
For in the past it has been used and abused,
The love it held just fizzled out and died
It became empty where love once did reside.


Broken in two it was bruised and battered
A loveless heart and so nothing mattered,
My heart is second-hand I can`t deny
I have to tell the truth I cannot lie.


This second-hand heart I will gladly give
For you to fill with love so that it may live,
I know you can make it feel like brand new
And show me just what true love can do.

A second-hand heart is not such a bad thing
Once filled with love - joy to you it will bring,
It needs to be able to trust again
Then feeling happy it won`t have to feign.


This second-hand heart I now give to you
No longer let it lie broken in two,
It has known heartache time and again
You can make it whole and stop the pain.


Don`t be afraid of a second-hand heart
With true love it can make a new start,
Memories of the past would be washed away
And the rest of my life would start today.
