Hearteater

Love Itself by Tracey Mac
Young hearts you love to collect
Consume them and leave them wrecked
And you have not one regret
Is your own heart content yet?

What a question for a certain type of person! I love the title and picture - the whole works so well. Thank you for attempting the tanaga with the Real Toads.

Somehow I doubt it. Chilling stuff. I love the rather disturbing title.

Wow! I love this poem. It says so.much, and speaks for so many. For me it brings feelings of guilt. Very powerful words.

Love the question you pose in this.

Yes, really telling and asking.
Hugely apposite after I watched the Channel 4 documentary at 10pm tonight.

Mary Ann Potter said...

What a question you've asked here! Does this need to be sent to someone in particular? Very impressive and to the point!

It's too bad we don't always see them for what they are. Until it's too late that is...
