    my heartbeart is tuned in /with your pace.

    Hello there! I am writing a poem (well I'm trying) and I don't know whether the following expression is correct: my heartbeat is tuned in /with your pace.
    Thank you

    In a poem, you can pretty much say anything you like.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    True, but I find it difficult to make sense of this one. Anyway, we'd normally say "tuned to".
    (I'm guessing the object of affection is a race horse; as he runs faster, her heart beats faster in admiration.)

    I'm guessing it's Usain Bolt.

    Juliana2, can you tell us in non-poetic words what you are trying to say?

    I'm trying to show that someone is so much in love that his/her heart is beating according to his partner's heartbeat or in general, way of living

    Re: my heartbeart is tuned in /with your pace.

    There is a conventional idiom for this - which may have originated in poety - 'two hearts beating as one'. A rather more prosaic term is 'synchronizing', but I don't suppose that would suit your context!
