My Heart

Is alone when it’s hunting

For anything that will make it

Beat fast again.

I know the time will come

But for now I will hunt alone.

And maybe one day the hunt

Will become a chase that last a lifetime

Of my heart beating to the same beat as yours

Whoever you are.

  1. The phrase ‘love lorn loins’ springs to mind – sorry about that.
    Some of my thoughts are not appropriate for public consumption but I thought that this one close enough to the edge to pass. πŸ™‚
    Plus – it’s got lovely alliteration or assonance or something like that.
    Oh, and I like your poem by the way, Deirdre. πŸ˜€
