University Life Café

the earth shaped like a heart in two hands

If My Heart Was A World

If my heart was a world
   How would it look?
A fiery planet
   With flames of passion
   Burning ever so fierce?
Or one of ice;
   A lifeless realm
   That's desolate and void?
Would it be littered
   With fissures and canyons;
   Battle scars of loves lost?
And if you ventured to this world
   What would you do?
Would its topography
   Convince you it's uninhabitable
   And scare you away?
Or would you terraform it,
   Turn it into something beautiful
   And call it your home?
