Heart of My Body

Tue, 02/09/2016 - 12:09 -- Noah.J

You want an answer

here is mine

much like my heart

it beats line for line.

 

my answer

it weathers the storm

to beat forever

till "nevermore."

 

the beat keeps time

with that breath of mine

pumping red to and fro

till time tells me to go  

 

how are you

good day to you

it is time for a change

 

listen

do you hear

the heart beats for change

 

a change of pace

a change of space

a change in the beat of time

 

My heart and I

we excel at changing

here and there and everywhere

 

did you listen closely

did you hear the answer everyone shares

did you

 

I can not live without my heart

my heart that beats just for me

but neither can you live without yours

 

 

neither can you live without yours

 

This poem is about: 
Me
