The Heart's Symphonic Waltz

The intoxication
of the swelling-
swirling-
swelling.
Ba-bum
Wind and moonlight
on your face.
Open your eyes,
fathom what I’m doing.
Ba-bum
Grin with me,
dance with me.
Listen to what I’m
singing.
Ba-bum
The leaves,
they are my notes.
Step, one-two-three,
The apple falls.
Ba-bum
Open your eyes,
look at Snow dancing
with Fire,
Oh, the beauty of the battle!
Ba-bum
Hah! I’m taking you
to the clouds
where our serenity
lives.
Ba-bum
Here’s my symphony,
listen!
My tornado of emotions
I’ve created cries out!
Ba-bum
Let’s dance faster, love!
We have to keep up with my beat.
Am I deceiving?
Ba-bum
Maybe,
but I am you.
You’re accusing yourself.
Ba-bum
Look at how Snow dances with Fire!
Look at how the leaves fall with the apples!
Ba-bum
Look at how you clench your teeth,
and cry with confusion!
Ba-bum
Faster, love!
Ba-bum
You know you love me.
Ba-bum
Look at my symphony swirl!
Ba-bum
I am beautiful!
Ba-bum
Watch us dance, love!
Ba-bum
Follow me, I’ll lead our waltz.
Ba-bum
I’ll lead our dance through life
Ba-bum
For I am your torch-bearer
Ba-bum
Your lover.
Ba-bum
Your enslaver
Ba-bum
I am your heart.
Ba-bum.

elegant poem. Well written. Great rhythm . I am definately a fan of this. It's beautiful. Great job to say the least. Can you look at "My Mommy is MIA" for me, i really need some feedback on that...if you can that is.

LOVE IT! 5/5 I esspecially like how the heartbeat pushes the melody along and the lines

"look at the Snow dancing

with Fire, 

Oh, the beauty of the battle"

and how you refer to them as people-its all just so beautiful.

I really like this poem... it's really well written and I like how the beat keeps up with the words. Think that maybe you could check out my work sometime?

Cool! I love the imagery that you have created here. I am kind of lost about the poem, though (I never was really good with abstract poetry, so don't worry about what I have to say.) Is the poem about a couple dancing outside in the snow?

The poem is about the confusion and torture hat a person's heart can cause. This poem is like the heart speaking to the person. Haha =]
