The Poet of The Heart is a poetry collection that touches everything the heart can feel, hope for, cherish, and even regret. In a collection of poems ranging from romantic to heart-wrenching, LaNona Walker dives into her passions and writes from the heart. Fragmented pieces of dreams and losses combine to bring you a touching series of stories that have deeper meanings in their rhymes and lyrics.

First excerpt: Two Halves
There were two of them, And they were everything between sailors and astronauts. Always together, never separate. Which one was real, no one knew. One or the other? Harder to pick, than you would think. The better part of the other: He the body, and she the heart. The brother, the oldest of the two, Was the strong and willful one. The one that stood up, That lead and protected, that spoke for the two of them. The sister, the frailer of the two, Was the quiet and kind one. The one that was patient, That followed and cared, that cared for both of them. Twins with different minds, But both one half of the other. One like the sun, And one like the moon. One lighter where the other was darker. Which was which? No one could tell. But regardless, soon one would leave the other behind- To be whole by themselves.
Second excerpt: The Dance of Fire and Rain
He chose the fire, And she chose the rain.
He swore he’d set the world on fire- Just for her. But she was by nature- The flood that would put it out. He wouldn’t stop, and she couldn’t go anywhere. So the fire and the rain danced. Until the fire burned out, and the rain disappeared. The flames rose higher and higher, And the teardrops of the sky fell. The fire and the rain danced, Until both were nothing. Just embers and smoke, Nothing more and nothing less.
