Heartache - Poem by londiwe buthelezi

My heart stops.
Beats again, but faster.
My eyes see you,
seals your image in my mind.
My ears hear your voice,
a sweet rumble that evokes unknown emotions.
My hands sweat,
the thought of touching you crosses my mind.
My feet freeze,
if i move i'll lose a moment with you.
My legs shake; my heart breaks.
Do you know how painful it is
to look at something everyday
and know you can never have it....

    Spoken like a true Poet. And there's no substitute to experience. None whatsoever...

    Cheers.

    Sometimes when we are raw and pure we become prey. Not everyone is good in this world. But having that moment...the one you keep forever, its worth the pain. Peace will come to you. (Report)Reply
