Poem- Hungry Heart , by SUZ7a   Philosophy and Poetry

Hungry Heart 

 
The heart’s first job is pumping blood, 
Where in and out our essence flows. 
It’s also here where passions flood 
To feed a love that grows. 

Its fragile shell, where feelings dwell, 
Is often known to ache 
In hungry hearts that yearn to swell 
With love to give and take.

Those so blessed to have such heart 
Are prone to feel its throes: 
Best stave off pains before they start 
With a heart that overflows.

Is anyone enjoying my poetry?

Most of it I wrote in the early 2020's. 

Nothing has been published, and none of it shared with anyone before I started posting here.

I thought my poetry might be some sort of diversion from the challenges of quitting, and you might start running away from those devil cigarettes. I thought maybe you could run into me.

I'd love your opinions.

Hi SUZ7a,

I enjoyed reading your poem.  I liked the last two stanzes.   My take away from your poem is our hearts are filled when we help others.  Be kind to  family, friends or foes.   We need each other.  

Thank you for sharing your wonderful poem with us.

Best

Hello, and yes I have been reading your poems.  You are quite the writer.  Have you considered putting them to music, lyrics.  Do you play an instrument?  In any event, its so great that you are able to express yourself this way.  Thank you for sharing them with us.

Cheers
