Heartbeat


I lived a life, a long time ago

in which two hearts beat as one

and no matter what shore I hide

the haunting call of this other soul

can never be denied.


The wild hooves of challenge

stampede throughout our lives

In a maze of flying manes and tails

We grasp the wild, bucking stallion

but the courage within us fails


Yet in my dreams I deeply dive

Into the crested waves of love

the turbulent waters of passions freed

where bravely reigning in the beast

Our hearts find time to lead


And in the distance, far away

In a timeless, nameless place

I still hear the wild horse cries

thudding across the sands of time

a heartbeat that never dies.

      This is so beautiful. I adore your poetry, and was particularly touched by the Hub that was in dedication to your Son. You have a wonderful way with words. Have you published your poetry on Yahoo's Associated Content? It's been a positive platform in regard to poetry and creative writing for me, so figured I'd ask. Thank you for these beautiful words that will creatively fuel my assignment filled morning :)

      -Your New Follower,
