"HEART OF DARKNESS"



So many many gifts
Have I received
And rejoiced in receiving
On my birthdays
Still kept safe
And closeted with care.
Others, which I got
On four anniversaries
Of my marriage.
Some more, occasional gifts
Given for random reasons.
But my woman's soul------
A human soul
At times, seeing and not seeing,
All at the same time
Seems like one
That can not recognise them
Though looking so hard
And wanting to.
