My Heart

Cafe Writing - Option Four - Timed Writing

…should I draw you the picture of my heart it would be what I hope you would still love though it contained nothing new. The early possession you obtained there, and the absolute power you have obtained over it,leaves not the smallest space unoccupied..
~Abigail Adams (in a letter to John Adams)

Take nine minutes (use all nine, but don’t go over), and write on the subject of a picture of your heart. This is a timed exercise and it’s expected that it won’t be perfect. Any format - fiction, essay, verse - is welcome.


My heart it only beats for you
Fluttering with just your precious smile
Or gentle ribbing given in jest
My love is overwhelming

My heart sees only you
No matter what we're doing
Out in public at social events
Or cuddling at home on the couch

My heart feels love like no one elses
You were and are my knight in shining armor
As you carry me over my present obstacles
Like you carried me over the past

My heart it hears your special voice
Even when we are both upset
It is able to pick out the loving tones
That keep us on the right path

My heart can taste the hunger
The thought of you always brings
I lust for you as I did from youth
As our twilight fast approaches
