silly little heartbeat

Folder: 
2017

seems like you could fix

my shaky handwriting

just by being able

to read me.

 

seems like you could make me

love the way

I can’t tell stories.

 

seems like you could make me

love the way

I’m hopeless more often than not.

 

seems like

no one would disapprove.

 

seems like all the

rain’s showered on you

but it’s okay

because the stars can dry

faster than the drops fall.

 

seems like you could fix

my laugh so

it never falls from the shelf again.

 

seems like I could

pay for anything

with what you’re worth.

 

seems like you could fix

my silly little heartbeat

the one that s-

s-

skips here

l-

like a

drum l-

line out of

rhythm.

Originality Is A Rare Gift

When I read your work I often re-read a line because I don't believe you said that like that and so very very well. That's good is one thing, but when you mentally say that all the way down and then you hit an ending like this one, there are no more accolades or compliments possible because you've covered the entire spectrum. Bravo and Encore! - yrpoemreaderandappreciator.

Thank you so very much! Can't

Thank you so very much! Can't help but grant the encore, if I didn't write I'd go insane.

Silly little heartbeat:

I like your poem here; it is certainly a different kind of poem - so full of erratic but contrasting comments. Sounds like hopeless infatuation tallsquirelgirl.
