My Heart and Me: A Poem

My heart and me
Is all I need to be complete;
I could try to stand
But can’t
Unless I know it’s for my heart and me.
I couldn’t see
With just me
So I made sure I still had my heart
To come along with me.
My heart would have worn away long ago
From the exhaustion of being on my sleeve
But for me—it kept beating
And for my heart—I kept breathing
We were meant to be,
My heart and me.
And I can’t love without thee,
My heart
And my heart can’t circulate blood
Without me
It would be a catastrophe
If I left my heart
Or my heart left me.
This is all I need to be complete:
My heart and me—
My heart is a fighter
For it’s been broken from disasters
But I helped mend it back together
And in return,
My heart forgave me—
All I need for love is my heart
And we’ll stand as one:
My heart and me.

My name is Tarah Lynn Hipple. I am twenty years old and am in college for psychology. My goal is to be a psychologist at the U of M Depression Center. I want to help others like I was helped. I was a puzzle and didn't know how to put the pieces together, and when I found out how I started to actually enjoy the breaths I took. I have been writing for ten years and have played the piano for thirteen years. It continues to amaze me when I sit down on the piano bench and I watch my fingers play a song. My family means everything to me and my dog is like my child. I love spending time with my friends. Through my writing, you see the "panicky" me and then you'll see how far I've come.
