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 Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
