My heart

It was only after meeting you

I got acquainted with pain

And became aware of  the existence  of a muscular unit

As big as a fist

Within my body

That got  gaga

At the slightest sound

Of you or your footsteps on the distant hills.

This organ, this very organ started to

Hit against my bony cage

Making me lose my sleep

And finally my peace

Turning me a complete freak.

And no matter how hard I try to tame it

It refuses to break its alliance with pain

In spite of no   gain.

So I  wait  impatiently for the day when it

stops  to  beat

and disturb my sleep

And blesses  me with   the everlasting gift of eternal peace.
