Your Heart

A fire in your heart I did start
And you composed the very music in my heart
You beckoned the murky mist away
You filled me with words but robbed me of what to say
I am captured by you but yet I must remain free
For some reason our love can not be
We come so near but yet we are from each other afar
Like the moon and a star
Our hearts sing in tune to one another
But yet we must not love each other
You come so close but there you must stay
Lest my heart you steal away
The ice in your heart I hope to melt away
Help you live not for the past but for today.
I try so hard not to love you not to care
But the truth is I need you and this isn’t fair
If you do not leap, you will never fly
And if you do not love you will never know how to cry
I’m not a genius I’m not experienced or smart
But I do know you possess a heart
I could not tell you this face to face
For I could not look you in the eye
I could not watch my opportunity go by
I have tried not to love you and failed bravely though I did try
And when you read this please do not cry
But in all honesty, I need you, I love you and for you I care
And if after healing you have no heart left, mine is big enough to Share.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
