In the event of my demise,
I leave to you my heart,
that Ive never felt beat,
the same way since you.

I leave to you my arms and legs,
that when times were hard,
I would use them to run to you,
and have you hold me close.

I leave to you my eyes,
that only saw you,
that never looked away,
or saw anyone the same as they saw you.

And I leave to you all my dreams,
the ones where you are the star,
and you recapture my heart,
but you already had all these things, all along the way.

These are all the things I miss having control over, and I felt like I couldnt control them anymore, but Im getting the hang of this.

this totally makes sense to me. i was on an airplane yesterday, and i thought, what if the plane crashes and i die, what would i leave behind? and all i could think of was writing to this boy that i've tried so hard not to be in love with. it made me realize that really, there's no denying i love him if this poem contains the spirit of what i'd say to him. thanks for writing it. beautiful.

This is really sweet! There's a tiny grammatical mistake (Ive), but aside from this, it's lovely. Great job!

Awesome poem! It really captures how I felt about my ex. Very deep. I felt like some of the lines didn't flow as smoothly as they could, but that is the only thing I can think of that I would change.

wow, what abeautiful poem. that seems like such a generic thing to say(as does pointing out that it's a generic thing to say), but this was truly deep. it most definently deserves to be printed in the mag.

This is a great poem that really tugged on my heart as i read. I hope you find the control you're seeking and keep writing. I'm waiting for more!
