The heart wants what the heart wants For the person nestled in its chambers, it longs The heart wants what the heart wants That person's face perpetually haunts The heart wants what the heart wants For that person beyond reasoning, it yearns The heart wants what the heart wants Irrationally and incessantly, it sings their song The heart wants what the heart wants It's willing to kneel in servitude despite the response The heart wants what the heart wants Knowing well it's right, the mind's taunts The heart wants what the heart wants Tries so hard, yet feelings begin to flaunt You can be their cook and their maid Bear their children, be their surrogate By their rules, always must have played Maybe, for all their expenses, you paid You can beg and cry Pray to God looking at the sky For their attention, you can wait With yourself, rationalize and debate But, you can't force love You can't earn love You can't wait on love You can't stop yourself from feeling love You can't grow their love You can't replace love You can't claim love You can't expand love You can't accumulate love You can't hoard love You either get it or you don't It's not something you can own

I have a very creative imagination. Most of my poems do not hint at my life/situation. Kindly refrain from drawing such parallels. Much of what I write is purely fictional. Situations and examples may be hypothetical. I have always written about topics I am passionate about – Christianity, makeup, melancholic poetry, food, romance, women’s issues, soulful music, narratives, etc. Given the circumstances, my gender, situation, geography, etc., I feel the need to put up a disclaimer! Everyone is entitled to an opinion. But, please don’t interpret this poem in a disrespectful manner. Please extend me the grace of excusing typos if you notice any. I seldom ever edit due to time constraints. My written material may have references to various substances, none of which I promote. My writings contain material that may be unsuitable for children.
