Poem: A Valentine for Palestine Heartbroken

A Valentine for Palestine Heartbroken*


By Genevieve Cora Fraser

Lost loves
Drown
In a sea
Of chaos
Lost loves
Drown
In a sea
Of pain
Lost loves
Linger
In echoes
Of your heartbeat
Lost loves
Dwell
Within the House
Of want
Shadow worlds
Abound
As the light
Draws dim
Cast shapes
In distorted fashion
Lost loves
Hover
A heartbeat away
Wait within eternity
To spring back
To life

* Dedicated to Palestinians who have lost loved ones through martyrdom, imprisonment, or the agony of separation imposed by Israeli sadism and totalitarian rule.
