An Ode To The Heart


I wrote this as a comment on this post here.

“The heart was made to be broken”
But why does it feel this way every darn time
Feels like it’s about to give up and yell the words – “I can’t take this anymore”
But still I rise
Still, I’m here
Here’s to the elasticity of the heart
Trampled on and consequently deformed, but never, never broken
Still, I’m here.

    LMAO@’ The heart was made to be broken’! 😁 Sounds pretty twisted I’d say, plus; little wonder the amazing Tina Turner asked this, in her darkest hour and most trying time…’Who needs a heart, when a heart can be broken’?😆

    Untitled huh? You so totally serenaded the heart with these beautiful lines and ‘An Ode To The Heart’ would absolutely make a world of sense! 😁

    So, here 👊is to the pretty resilient, mallaeble and enduring heart! And to these lines of thoughts too! Great thinking TM! 😊😄

    😂😂. I just assumed it was made during a period of heartbreak.

    😃, you think so? I can totally add that yeah? 🙏🏾

    Merci. 🙂🙏🏾

    ….aand you’d have assumed rightly TM! 😁

    She’d just gotten through a very rocky and abusive marriage and relationship with her then hubby and ex; Ike Turner, who’d pound and beat her black and blue…to a pulp; till she mustered enough strength and courage to finally walk out on him and their marriage. It was this happenstance that inspired and birthed that evergreen classic with the lyrics…
    ‘What’s love gat to do, gat to do with it. What’s love…a second-hand emotion’….

    It goes on and on and terminates at…
    ‘Who needs a heart when a heart can be broken’.
