Potato Heart – Eva van Beek

Kindly put that deceit away
There’s no where to march
And no one to blame

We blindfolded ourselves
To conquer the sea
We cheated our hearts
To laugh at kismet
We lied to our soul
To make it believe

Kindly put that disgust away
There’s no where to march
And no one to blame

We imprisoned ourselves
To desire and greed,
We broke our hearts
On trivial bauble
And sold our souls
To jewels of dirt

Kindly put that scorn away
There’s no where to march
And no one to blame

We have rendered our minds
To woeful neglect
We left our hearts
To dry like potatoes
And declared our souls
a tale of the past

Kindly note our nature’s requital
There’s nothing but love
to safe our existence

I am a Social Worker by day and an artist/writer by night. I use the written word in an attempt to make sense of the secret worlds and dysfunctional dynamics that lurk beneath the facades of our daily interactions. I am not sure how my writing styles are characterized, nor am I overly concerned about it. I am immensely enthusiastic about music and often connect better with songs than I do people. I also have an intense appreciation for quality wines and whiskies, frequently consuming them in excess. I like things that smell good and struggle to manage the symptoms of a life-long relationship with depression. So, why "grumpygorman"? Spend some time here and find out...
