A New Love Valve for my Heart

I need a new valve
In this little heart of mine
I need a sturdy one
That only lets enough love out
As the amount of love coming in

The valve I have is faulty
For even when love comes in a trickle
It lets out a strong surge of love 
And my little heart gets depleted
Of life giving love 
Leading to....
Heart attacks!
Yes, I suffer heart attacks
That are painful and frightening
The after effects of discomfort
Last such a LONG time
And I wonder….
Will the next one be fatal?

I need a new valve
I MUST get a new valve
Right away!
Before it’s too late!
Or perhaps…..
Perhaps…
I need a new heart?

    I think your Heart is intact my dear, the thing about love is the more we give the more human we become. It certainly has added to your poetic voice.

    Richard....this means a lot to me. It is hard to feel so deeply. Sometimes I wish I could be more superficial...but...that's just not me! Thanks for the post! :)

    Kasim...I'm sorry for the pain you are going through. Hope there is an end in sight..if not, just remember, "It's better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all!" Thanks for the post! :)

    I have been through this tyrannical process many times. The heart has her own rules: Ready to sell a piece of the soul to get her wish. Beautiful, real, human and marvelously deployed! Thank you.

    Demetrios...you are so kind! Thanks for the lovely post. It is good to know that others have gone through the same predicament. The heart knows no reason. What to do? Hope you have a good day! Hugs!

    What an angel you are. I pray that God above will give you no more pain than you can bear. I also pray that he fills your heart with endless joy and love for all time. Soup mail.
