A Dedication To A Friend

I’m cutting right through to the chase today. Allergies have cursed me with the mother of all allergy curses, the migraine. So, here is my Blogging A to Z (letter H) and NaPoWriMo response (write a calligram-a visual poem).

This is dedicated to my very lovely, sweet friend Lizzi whom I can’t stop thinking about today. All my love, dearest.

P.S. I’m sorry the heart is skewed. WordPress does not like to accomodate formatting. However, in a way, it’s appropriate.


The Fragility of Hearts

by Jessica Scott



                                 HEARTS ARE                                     SUCH VERY

                                  FRAGILE THINGS                             TOO SMALL TO

                                 HOLD SUCH LARGE EMOTIONS; NO WONDER THEN

                                    THAT THEY BREAK SPLINTER SHATTER LIKE GLASS WITH

                                       SHARDS MICROSCOPIC TO THE EYE THAT YOU NEVER FIND

                                         AND SO THE HEART CAN NEVER BE MENDED CAN NEVER

                                          QUITE BE MADE WHOLE AGAIN THOUGH WE TRY TO

                                           FIND THE GLUE THAT CAN KEEP US TOGETHER

                                            LIFE RARELY TURNS OUT OKAY BUT WE PER

                                              SEVERE IN SPITE OF THE HEARTBREAKS

                                              BECAUSE THE HEART IS THE ONLY

                                             PART OF THE BODY THAT

                                                CAN TRANSFORM

                                                    INTO GOLD


Jesi Scott is an aspiring writer of novels, a poet, and blogger. She has guest-blogged over at The Well-Tempered Bards, and has a post featured at For Love Of…. Jesi has two poems published in Memories of Mist, a literary anthology, and one published story in a newsletter. She is currently working on releasing her first poetry collection as well as writing her first novel. When not writing, Jesi can be found getting lost in bookstores, singing and dancing around the house, experiencing culture with friends, and generally having fun with her four sons when they aren’t driving her weeping into her closet, which she calls her Padded Cell. She loves to rescue stray bookmarks, as well as books, and has opened her heart to any and all stories needing a home. Archery is her current favorite thing ever but you might want to stand back a little as she still has a tendency to drop the bow occasionally.
