Expanding Heart (tanka)

When I was first introduced to the tanka, I was intimidated. But now I find that when I write, I write by syllable count.

A tanka follows the 5-7-5-7-7 form

I’m in love with you
I hear your voice in my dreams
Your arms hold me tight
When you’re near, my heart expands
It overflows with your love
