Plastic Hearts

We exist in a world of plastic
all things composed of plastic parts
plastic people with plastic hearts.

Gone unadulterated hearts
emotional, affectionate, benevolent hearts,
afflicted, sorrowing, broken hearts.
Vanished! Part of an era far far gone.

‘Tis a sad fate indeed, hearts
as if of plastic with self-seeking aims.
Absent tenderness, love and empathy.
Merciless hearts, brutal, constructed plastic,
simulated, passionless, indestructible.
A garbage dump of imperturbable plastic hearts.

From whence comes consolation for genuine souls?
Souls with hearts that emote,
soar, love, empathize, anguish, break.
Where cometh the comfort for archaic souls,
adherents to the beating heart?
Hearts that are crying, dying, murdered hearts.
Strangled in the maze of plastic people
with cold dispassionate plastic hearts

  1. So true, Ritu. Although there are many who seem to possess unfeeling hearts as if of plastic, there will always be those who emote and have love and compassion. This was written at a time when I had been hurt tremendously by a plastic heart. We know, don’t we, that in the end good prevails and those with loving hearts will remain always.

  2. wow…..impressive Dorianna…….how brutally are the real hearts murdered at the hands of merciless plastic heart people without realizing any pain……but given the fact that the plastic hearts outnumber the real ones we cannot deny the existence of the real heart that still loves, feels, gives, cares and forgets the faults of another…..
