POEM| No Heart

What if I had no heart…

I probably wouldn’t be alive
I wouldn’t know love
I wouldn’t know pain

I wouldn’t care
I wouldn’t have thoughts
I wouldn’t have feelings

I wouldn’t look for you
I wouldn’t wait for you
I wouldn’t pray for you

I wouldn’t need you
I wouldn’t like you
I wouldn’t love you

But I have a heart…

It’s beating right now
yearning to receive
all the love it has ever given

Hi, my name is Mariam Shittu and I live in Lagos, Nigeria. I’m a poet, but I also write about my travels, places in Lagos, my lifestyle and things that inspire me. I enjoy sharing my knowledge with the world and nurturing the human mind. Thanks for stopping by!
