"Heart Of Dynamite" A Series of Short Poems

I always try to do what my heart tells me to do

but it always blows up in my face.

My heart is some kind of dynamite

always going off at the wrong time and place.

I never meant to hurt anyone

at least of all, not you.

But we cant control who we fall in love with

and we certainly can not choose.

KABOOM!!!

Dreaming of You

~~~

I Wish my dreams from last night would come true.
I dont remember all the details but I remember you.
You were with me
Just the way I wanted you to be.

But then I awoke
and I was alone.

Out of my Control

If I could stop thinking about you I would,
But I cant control my mind.
If I could stop wanting you I would,
But I cant control what I like.
I cant control my heart,
or what it falls for,
Anymore than I can control the stars,
or what they stand for.

Drown

Have I made a mistake?
I just dont know...
Was it a little too late
for my heart to slow?
Every beat getting lighter,
and I feel I'm about to drown...
Will you pull me out of the water,
or will you push me down?

Its getting harder to breathe
every time you come around...
I know you'll just leave,
and let me drown.
See, you're doing it already,
just keep on letting me down...
But I wont hold my head steady
for you to drown.

Nikki, all of these are really good but 'Drown' is fantastic! Seriously, you hit it out of the park with that one. It's so ... intense is the only word I can think of but that not it. My chest got tight reading it. Beautiful and painful. I loved the flow and rhythm, your word choice is perfect. Really can't say enough about it. Voted up, awesome and beautiful because it is!

Your poetry is always so beautiful and I sense the longing there too, Nikki. But the heart makes its own decisions for the best reasons and we have to listen to it, no matter what.

I love the Drown poem so much. I feel the indecision there... wow, it is so strange to be in a place like that... But your words always capture it so wonderfully... :)
