My heart is riding on a swing
Swirling through summer's sweetened air
Your heart is attached to a millstone
Pulling towards winter's withered wasteland

My eyes gaze in wonder
At the miracles of a million marvels
Your eyes slowly turn down
On the trails of tiresome toiling

Will your bleeding
stop when mine begins
Will space expand around you
when I lock myself in

Or will we simply need to
tilt the mirror
to the other side

Young as I am, I do have a particular experience I thought I had dealt with. Until this came along. You make my heart remember what my mind chose to forget.You lovely lady, you.

I remember one summer day when I had a conversation with a friend of mine. I thought that day about two magic hats. One hat, with my thoughts I wanted to put on his head, and the other, with his thoughts, to put on mine. We were trying to get closer but yet the distance grew bigger. Then I thought I was "eating his space".I find my emotions and my thoughts in your poem. Thank you.

Brilliant work! Into my favourites it goes.
How tortured are we who feel the emotions SO deeply!
This poem is SO short but SO incredibly powerfull! You are a wonderful poet, my friend.
I know EXACTLY where you are coming from here as you have in the past shared with me.

Great poem Heike. It has an interesting theme; whether, and to what extent, one accommodates the nature of another. The poem flows well too.

I loved the use of the contrast of the two....Intriguing, and done so the reader can understand perfectly....Very nicely done, Heike...
Thought provoking of one's balancing act......Margaret..the Bag Lady

Brilliant. All your poems hide behind the words such deep meanings, such an intelligent mind. Balance...

What a dilemma. It takes courage to risk the higher plane for the sake of raising another's consciousness. Nice work, Heike. ML
