Layers of my heart

Love is an amazing thing and many wonder if they can have many loves in their hearts. This original poem by London poet and artist, Elle Smith, confirms that we can love multiple people in our lives in her beautiful poem "Layers of My Heart":


Layers of my Heart


I met him when I was just nineteen. 

My heart leapt for joy, each time that we would meet.


I loved every second that we filled with such fun.

But it ended really suddenly, before time… it was done.


He secretly crept into my heart, unwittingly it seemed.

Then took pole position disqualifying others who could compete.


Our lives were not together, so time pushed us apart.

The feelings that I felt for him, embedded at the core of my heart.
