"The wave that beats" is a story about a girl named Em's heart. Em's heart IS the wave! Please read and comment!!!!!

My heart is a wave that beats ,

A wave that eats - the fish or fools that mistreat,

My heart is a wave that roars ,

How many time was it broken ? Can't keep up the score

My heart is a lion lost at sea,

Big in a big ocean of unclearity even though it's surrounded by serinity,

This one time my heart began to beat and it was no longer sealed,

But soon as the cresent of the moon peaked from my mouth The currents came and it was killed

My heart is a deaf fist that pounds, 

After a few fast beats No longer can I hear the sound,

My heart is a tear stuck in a shy eye,

It wants to explode but doesn't want anyone to see it cry.

My heart is the sky - that part is true ,

Sometimes it's yellow or red, but majority of the times it's blue,

My heart is no longer attached to me,

Its on the ground on the bottom of my loves shoe

My heart is a lantern floating through the night of the ocean

So I guess there is a little light?

My heart is a ball - that much I can say

It just get thrown and kicked around all day,

My heart is a perserved corpse that can revive,

But guess the nonobvious -though it is almost fully dead- It once was alive.

Wow. I love all of the metaphors. This is something I could see in an AP art studio (if it were a drawing, of course, but I could see it in my mind). This is very good! :)
