Can You Hear It?


If you could hear my heart beat
I wouldn’t have to say a word
It would tell you my life story
From noun to noun and verb to verb
It would tell you my good times
When it seemed I had wings like a bird
And tell my bad times
When I hit the bottom landed in the dirt
From time like when I thought
She was the one
And back in ’06 when I was like
Man, look what I’ve done
Even stories so sad
Like when she left me in the rain
And had broke-up problems so bad
If you heard it you would cry and feel my pain
That’s why I need a girl
That I can keep all to myself
And I can tell her my deepest secrets
I’ve never told anyone else

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
