Finding My Heart

Poem By Tessa Eichhorst

How come when I want something I
try to set my heart to it? But what does
my heart really want? In most situations
you're told to go with your heart. Now
a days my heart's so mixed up, my head
could make irrational choices; choices
that could hurt myself and others.

Everytime I come close to someone
I protect my heart and play mind games
instead. But how can I protect something
that screws me up so much; doesn't seem
like it's there? All these years I've tried to
filter out what I want from them; from life.
In this last month, my heart has thought
so much and tried making decisions, I
no longer know what to believe. For awhile
I thought what I wanted was a solid choice,
but now it's changed. It's left my head
racing and my heart spinning out of control;
I don't know what I desire.

I now have so much to filter out, my head's
on overdrive and my heart on overload.
I've created so many ideas, I'm afraid my
heart will lead me in the wrong direction;
I'll choose the wrong path.

Hopefully I'll be able to find my real heart
soon and put this all behind me. If what
has flustered me for so long is my heart,
why can't I fix it now, the time when I need
steady emotions most. All I want is some
clarity in my life, and to find my real heart.

I think what you need is a real heart-to-heart talk. H

A Sister Is.....

A sister is your guardian angel if she's older,
and your constant shadow if she's younger.
She's your best friend in all your endevours.
Your confidant, protector of your heart,


All these years I've spent without you
physically in my life, but you clearly are
an inspiration. Lately I've tried to be
what you were and what your spirit still


Everytime I see your face whether in
person or in thought, I feel the need to
smile. You bring joy to my heart, a
beam of sunlight to my face, and


I'm wishing that this day would
have never come, the day, today,
that you went away.

One Cold Day

She hasn't seen him for
days, weeks, even months.
The day she went to see him
will be one she will never

Walk Away

Too many times has something held me back from achieving something great. I almost stopped my life waiting for your next move; a move I'd still be standing in line for.

I try to tell myself my life is greater than you, greater than this facade we both went through. I've now released the pressure of you and walked away.
