>My Heart Not Knows: by Pete Marshall


My Heart Not Knows
by Pete Marshall

My heart not knows where love will lie
Upon a cursed & ravaged bed
And storms will rage in darkened skies
My heart not knows where love will lie
No longer touched by waking eyes
A love is spurned as words are said
My heart not knows where love will lie
Upon a cursed & ravaged bed


Its Triolet Day at One Stop Poetry, hosed by Shan Hendry. This is my attempt at tackling this form.
