Heart Attack

by butterflyzrfree

I try to put on the coffee but
the hurricane is already
stirring up the
waves within my vessels
shaking my heart.

Wind blows a tornado.
The waves in my blood are
A single whirlwind could be the death of me.
It would not be the first time for a tumult.

I drink my coffee at a table where I write.
Pick up a pen; prefer it to machine
something in the cereal must have been bad
there is a wild churning in my chest.

I think of the a love that once had made me hot
all sweat with passion as he made me bear.
the pain he left me with is still a scar
Today, it's off, how I feel the twinge.

Once was told I have the whirl of wisdom
of passionate poetry
around which the tornados flow.
Yet it matters not, for,
I have been waiting
all along,
for this catastrophe.

    Thanks Lindsay, and yes, I do believe that this comment gives a new spin on the poem, and that I am not inspired to write another one! thanks!
