This Is My Heart

This is my heart
Each word
has its own beat
Like a deep
rumbling drum
or soft flicker
of a thumb
This is my heart

  16. There is no denying it. One takes one's heart to be so dear that it is guarded so as not to be hurt unnecessarily. So few words but so deep in meaning. Great lines Torie!
