My Heart and the Alien – A Poem
My Heart and the Alien -
I have a four chambered heart much like most everyone else,
I am a nerd in one heart,
a romantic in the next,
a perv in the third,
a dreamer in the last.
I am fading into your moody blue alien eyes.
as the cold night embraces an already
All the chambers of my heart smile
back at you.
And beat with an unnatural warmth not
found on this earth.
You don’t belong here on this world,
and you are soon to leave.
For that reason alone, I wish the
the sections of my heart would quiet itself
Each beat in quarter time to a tune
I do not recognize anymore since your
presence came to town.
Please leave soon on the next
My heart is at war
and may soon burn it
Take to the stars, and then
and only then, can
my heart look to
them without doubt.
