i want to claw my way into your heart
until i sew myself inside

i want to kick out your heart beat
in temper tantrums and calm steps

until your sinews sing in metaphors
you hadnt imagined

until you speak in lines of poetry that make
the other take you seriously

i want them to mark you as a REAL MAN
and think that you have graduated from some unbeknownst boyhood

i want you to soak in the rain and the heat
until you feel more human

and when all these things are settled i
will defiantly give your body back to you

and when your heart beats without the kicking
of my aching legs

i want you to love me still


One thought on “Heartbeats

  1. Hi there,

    This is quite chilling but beautifully illustrates the frustrations of a woman who loves an emotionally unavailable man.

    I am putting together a collection of poems from both women and men about Love, relationships and dating. The book is called 7 Shades of Love. .

    This poetry book is designed to compliment my self-help book Mr Wrong, “a humorous and insightful exploration into why some women continually Mr Wrong and how to set out onto a positive path to Mr Right.” Check out my about page for more info.

    Please, if you are interested in contributing. Get in touch. For examples of my poems check out one I wrote here called Real Love. http://dingdongitsmrwrong.wordpress.com/2012/10/07/real-love-is/ Also search for Real Love and Strong Women. Poems can be as long or short and in any format you wish.

    I look forward to hearing from you! If you are interested in getting involved, please inbox me or email me at dingdongitsmrwrong@yahoo.co.uk


    D 🙂
