My Heart

My Heart short poem

Photo by contemplicity

I stepped into the teens
With my heartbeat in tune

I felt world too romantic
On seeing every dame

I was shy and hesitant
to talk to any of those dames

I met this attractive female
and was bowled over by her charm

My heartbeat hitherto steady
began beating at random to her tunes

Unknowingly my heart slipped away
and safely landed in her domain

Without my heart I was breathless
and hoping against hope I thought
She would send her heart in exchange
for me to breathe and survive

She did send back the heart
but was broken and brazed

I later realized that the girl had
already exchanged her heart to some one
The one which I sent as one piece
has returned as several pieces

Now with a broken heart
I am only breathing but not living

I am now convinced that life
Completely takes a U turn
The moment one steps into teens
Now with a broken heart
I am only breathing but not living
