PRINCESS OF MY HEART
You are the one I think of when I pen affectionate poetry.
You are the one in my heart when I scribble a love story.
Every piece centered on love is, of you, celebratory
Because somehow it has been made mandatory.
I cannot seem to resist,
Cannot seem to desist
From letting you snatch all of my attention like a successful heist.
Surprisingly, you become more than just another name on my people list.
Just hearing your name gets me, invigorated.
I cannot have the energy, abated.
With others, I seem to have a right to have my emotions inflated or deflated
But with you, it is always inflated.
To see you, I am ever excited
As you have the best parts of me ignited.
How best to put this, I do not know
But I guess you already know.
You already know I hold you in my heart like gold
And hope that we end up together and grow old.
I have thought of shooting shots at others, I must admit
But the seed of love you have planted in my heart would not let me, such actions, commit.
