Naked Heart

Poem By Keri Jopplin

How much goodness will my heart try to do;
After it's beat so long & what it's been thru?
I've felt so much pain BUT my life must go on,
Hard times & prayers, is my spirit lost gone?

I'm a passionate ol soul, perhaps over-whelmingly so!
My heart as it beats, it runs...going for gold.
Love is grand, beautiful, it didn't break my heart,
Vulnerable at cost, losing a love, tore me apart!

A new paining scar, my heart tires with pain;
I've lost more in love, than I care to regain.
Weeping in sorrow, as I yearn to be strong,
Longing for love, lost, where do I belong?

My heart feels much, in a large degree
The hearts all forgiving & loves as it please
I've not prepared, when my heart skips a beat
Hiding from fear... as it speeds into retreat

Be true to oneself as it's a positive plus!
Spoken for, in time, our hearts shouldn't fail us!
One swift act of kindness, my heart has been shown;
Where it has been...lost, broken....unknown.

Snow Whispers

She dances upon snow gone lost in her dreams,
Wiggles turn to giggles as she makes angel wings.
Wishing upon stars under beams of the moon,
She hums her favorite, a lost & forgotton tune;


Do I dare approach passion with loaded gun?
Hoping to hear your heart, to taste your tongue?

Be fair I say, hearts mercies are tender, unfeigned.

Happy Birthday Momma

I think of you often a hundred times a day,
To the Lord I ask, for my momma I pray;
No more suffering in Heaven you lay,
You would have been older sixty-two today.

Thank You

Thank you for the good times,
And days you fill with pleasure.
Thank you for fond memories;
And for feelings I'll always treasure.


Sweet dreams and memories of days long gone; .
Remembering my life and loves gone wrong.
I can't go back there's so much to replace,
My dreams become reality that's hard to face.

Cupid's Arrow

You''ve unlocked my heart and kept the key;
I'm unable to breath, unable to flee.
You've showed me love, gave my heart a home
Grateful to you, I'm no longer alone
