A Burning Heart

When you love someone, you open your heart.
You open it so wide, it pours from every vien in your body.
That beating heart, beating love- then to take it away:
Beats nothing.

Oxygen in your lungs, air you've always breathed.
Eyes you use to see, what you always hear.
So numbing, not to have it here, all gone.
Without it- Nothing.

A hot blazing fire, keeps you warm too.
Constantly throwing more wood onto.
It burns bigger, and brighter in time.
Until it goes out- leaving nothing behind.

When you love someone, they have your whole heart.
But like dumping water all over a fire.
Stomping out your heart, all your desires.
The fire it sizzles and smokes. Remaining just ash.

After it's left, soaking wet and dead;
Like a heart full of love, everything you ever dreamed of.
That beating heart, left in the ash;
Beats, burns, and feels nothing.

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Out of the bosom of the Air
Out of the cloud-folds of her garments shaken,
Over the woodlands brown and bare,
Over the harvest-fields forsaken,
Silent, and soft, and slow
