You wowed me completely with this poem. I simply love it. Why? Because the tone is jaunty and perky but the thought behind the carefree tone is complex. In fact, someone NOT paying close attention to the drift of the stanzas might conclude this is a poem of irresponsible delight. Actually, you express the complexity of entering the world of genuine emotions with outer optimism but inner caution. Your optimism is especially welcome: you will not let fears spoil your high spirits. But you are on your guard. The closing passage may indeed be wish fulfillment, but we need dreams like this one to guide us in the real world: the dreams shows what we truly want and will not settle for anything less. The coin toss symbolizes the force of Fate which looms over us, but also the risks we are willing to take to achieve our dreams.

Once again on this poem, The agony of the flaming heart is pictured by a very clever icon, that of the bridge which makes the pace to the target so visible.The other icon of tossing the heart gives you to feel what on stake.The vital decision concerns the whole life, you thing it is about life or death.Oh yes, death, when a love wxpected fails a life whole fades, a heart droops, withers, schrevels up.And all these you see in front of your feeling, your understanding.A poemto be adrmired for its real poetic values, Kudos Aphrodite.

Loved this poem of love and taking chances. Like tossing a coin into a wishing well and waiting for the one you love to appear. Questioning whether they're the one or if it'll be another. Great energy building imagery in this poem, I enjoyed it very much. Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn

Great metaphor, gambling with you heart, is sometime the only to win love or another heart.

Thank you sir! ! Indeed, sometimes it's the only way... I guess it takes the faith and determination and perhaps... the courage of a gambler to through your heart to a man's feet because you believe in him...

?y first reading I have been astonished to see the feelings flowing so living in, between, under, futher of the verses. The use of the english vocabulary so large and accurate.The rhyme as natural river with its repeated different and sames sounds. Dear Aphrodite, I'm sure that you will grow to be a great poetess.
