Like a Heartbeat
Poetry by Marla Deaton

My heart races when I think of you,
In your eyes, I see who I want you to be.
In your arms, I imagine me there,
My heart sees what it wants to see.
Seeing youíre not real, it pounds anyway,
Out of instinct, want and need.
I remind it that you donít care,
You only have love to take.
With nothing to give in return,
It doesnít care.
It just wants and wants and wants,
Like a heartbeat.
