Maya Hanson (mye3 poet)


Heart Gone Haywire


I take one step away,
back into my past
the only thing I know
It's bright and sweet
and I can't help thinking-
it doesn't seem like mine

Can't you see my heart's gone haywire
Thinkin' about you
Can't you see I'm invisible beside you
And I'll
Never be
In your heart

I'm playful and mysterious,
teasing at you
Telling you to come a little closer
I'm dark and different and dangerous,
taking my full heart and hiding it
deep inside you where no one else can find it

Can't you see my heart's gone haywire
Thinkin' about you
Can't you see I'm invisible beside you
And I'll
Never be
In your heart

Something about this feels empty
Empty like we never could be
Something about this I'm sure
Is tragic and I'll never know who you are

I'm singin' something about this feels empty
Empty like we never could be
Can't you see I'm fallin' fast
Tryin' hard to make it last
But I'll never know who you are

Can't you see my heart's gone haywire
Thinkin' about you
Can't you see I'm lost tryin' to find you
I'll never be found till you find me first
And I'll
Never be
In your heart
No, I'll
Never be
In your heart

    The power of positive thinking,

    pitter patter of one heart wanting that....iip (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Thomas Wyatt

My lute awake! perform the last
Labour that thou and I shall waste,
And end that I have now begun;
For when this song is sung and past,
My lute be still, for I have done.
