Be still Beating Heart
By: Adam M. Snow

Be still my beating heart,
your pounding intrudes me.
It fills me with pains;
I ache with sorrow of thee.
You tell me to love,
but why do you break thee?
If it's not meant to be, then why?
Why don't you let me see?

    Adam, " intrudes me" ? Are you an ESL speaker? I still think you need to stop " composing" for a while and immerse your ego in some good contemporary poetry. Really, you'd be surprised how exciting it is to find beauty and power outside your own circumscribed, solipsistic view of this art form.
