There’s something in my chest
Growing, swelling
A disease manifesting in my heart
It latches to my nerves and infects my brain
It’s love

It overflows from my heart
Oozing through my ribs like a thick river
Of butterflies and tired words
Remembered laughs and the sound of your voice

But lately it’s a symphony of voices
A theatre full of musicians playing my heartstrings
You’re a musician baby, and so are they

I’m sick
Infected with too much love for too many people
It’s a heart transplant
But they don’t take my old heart out first
Just add more and more until they spill from my ribs
Filling every corner of me until I crack

But baby I love it

Don't get me wrong, this is supposed to be a happy poem
#love   #happy   #you   #polyamory   #sickness  

love is a disease that i welcomed easily
i ran into it's arms and got stabbed right in the heart
betrayed by the feeling that i had always trusted most
and when i fell back hoping to be caught
you weren't there, you weren't there
i fell right to the floor, you told me you loved me
and then you left me there cold and sore

just now my heart gave two great
and heaving beats
that shuddered my whole chest.
i know this is just a symptom
of the cardiac quirk i inherited from my mother
but it felt to me like some sort of physical closure.
for a moment after it happened
my chest didn't have that emptiness anymore.
my body is healing my nonbody.
that's what it felt like.
for a second, anyway.

Trying to use
willpower
to overcome an addiction
is like applying
topical medicine
to cure

HEART DISEASE!

I consider addiction
To be a
SPIRITUAL PROBLEM
A person who is
Addicted to anything
Has made that
Person/thing their
Higher Power
or
GOD
About the broken heart-disease
true
Dec 30, 2011

If the world knew what I knew
About the broken heart-disease
And how it festered deep inside you,
Or if they’d seen you change as I had
Caught quick glances of the real you,
If they’d watched there be no cure
As it became a trust infection,
If the world weren’t so sure that you
were just an imperfection
Then they’d box up their rejection
And accept you.

I am greedy,
Greedier than greed,
Motive lies,
Behind each deed,
All I do,
That motive,
Is to,
Receive,
One thing,
It's behind,
My being,
My smile,
My hello,
All my well wishes,
It's all that I know,
It's my worth,
To me,
It's first,
More than gold,
It cannot be,
Bought,
Stolen,
Or sold,
It is very rarely,
As it seems,
And when it's not,
It plagues me,
It's my own,
Heart disease,
I do not disagree,
I deserve this,
With all my greed.

Wash my brain
Wash it clean
Burn it down with kerosene
Self inflicted lobotomy
I wish I could tell you what's wrong with me
I bring new meaning to heart Disease
Everything I love runs speedily
It's for the best
Don't you agree?
They'll never see
My crazy streak
They'll love me for
What I am not
The empty smiles
And pointless thoughts
I'll put them in my special box
and pretend that I forgot
This is just a game I play
to keep the rain at bay
Nothing more to say
I was born this way

We are so advanced
Our technology
Has freed up
So much more time
Which we in invest
In worthless
Exploits
Sensual indulgences
Achieving nothing but
Short term pleasures
While our ancestors
Were out there
In the great unknown
Discovering fire
Measuring gravity
And preventing
Heart disease
By catching
Tonight's dinner
While today we
Sooth our conscience,
Ironically, quite successfully
With microwave dinners
And Hollywood sinners
And wonder why our
Incessant discontentment
Leaves us with
Passive resentment

My face in your chest
Gather my tears
Protect me from everything
I fear

My face in your chest
Tears fall for the ground
You catch them before they touch
Hold me Save me

Worrying too much
You are my clutch
Don't let me alone
Stay by my side please

Without you I would freeze
Death would come without the sun
You give me reason to smile, to run
A cure to my broken heart disease

Strong with you
Together we make two
In you I find comfort
Your arms are my blanket

I just want to stay warm
You're the only one who knows how
To make me feel safe
Yet on the streets I walk alone now

My face in your chest
Pull me closer now
I listen for your heartbeat
The only one I'll allow

As if poets have the explanation to life.
When they are voluntary slaves of Mind

As if poets had the balls to go beyond all these things.
As if .
