Rhythm Of My Heart

Rhythm of my heart

Beating pom pom

To a tune unknown.



Beating for survival.

And I dance to it,

For I hear no other music.


You come to me

And hold my heart captive


The rhythm changes

A new beat!

A new song!

Alas! I dance a new step.

And for you only,

I sway my hips

And juggle my feet

To this rhythm of my heart.

I am enraptured in this music,

And by you,

The one my heart beats for.

  1. Your writing will sure inspire love and transformation indeed!!! @febidel you are thinking my thoughts. There is something about the heart’s rhythm and love.I like it. Thanks for sharing your thing.

    1. P.S: Does the heart beat go POMPOM or GBIGBI, I think the onomatopoeia is GBIGBI.
      #just my thought#

      1. @sambrightomo. I’m happy you like this poem. About the onomatopoeia, I didn’t consider that. Thank you for that observation.

        1. Like I said it is my thought.Yours could go pompom for the guy.LOL

          1. Come to think of it, @sambrightomo, I think my heart was going pompom when I wrote the poem. Lol.

            1. POM POM, wow that guy must be very special!

  2. i am not an art student but i believe the poet can make this poem better. it is okay though, short and clear to decipher.

    1. @Laworemike. I am open to your suggestions on how the poem can be improved. What are your exact observations? Can you be specific about how I can make this poem better? Thank you.

  3. … a great write…

    1. @innoalifa, Thank you. What do you think about “We Let them Hijack Our Christmas”. It was published on 31st December. I’d like to know what you think about it.

    nice write! Straight to the point, easy to decode or decipher.@sambright, I agree with you. GBiGBI could have beautify it more.

    1. @basittjamiu. Your suggestion is duly noted with thanks.

  5. Simple but nice. But it can be better. I especially felt that a different word for ‘captive’ might have made it more elegant.

    1. @chemokopi. Thank you. What words do you suggest in place of ‘captive’? I’d like to know, please- it can only get better.

  6. nice one, so who is the lucky one your heart beats to?.

    1. @danjuma, thank you. But I should not kiss and tell, should I?
