Heart Beats
Author: Marilyn A F Longfellow


There's nothing more lonely,
Than a heart yearning for touch.
It beats a message,
For someone to trust.
Will she hear it,
In this maddening rush?
And sings the louder,
Like a mating Thrush!

------- Author's Notes -------

Written for Peter ,who wrote the first line of this poem himself,I finished it. He said it was exactely how he was feeling, and he is married. Wake up all you wives out
there! IS your husband yearning for your touch? Think about it! For Petes Sake!

Two Hearts , Forever In One ...

i'm proud to say, as a WIFE ,i've never experienced nor had complaints from the love of my life , but a WIDOW I do feel the rough edges of loneliness w/o my soulmate.. when two hearts become one, the one thats left behind, struggles to breath with out the power of their heartbeat, your poem is felt in different ways in life...will i hear him in my dreams when i lay down? with all that is goin' on in my life.. will i bring him back to life , as i always have? one never forgets their first love...i loved it...i love all your work..

Heart Beats!

Glad you like my poems.Sorry you lost your love. And hope you will find another someday, I know my heart will always skip a beat until my new love is lying next to me, two hearts beating as one. Read my poem Just Hold My Hand, maybe that will help also
