Heartbeat

I used to think that
You stole my heart
Or did I give it willingly
I don’t seem to remember
It would beat hard
Thumping against my chest
As if it were trying to
Escape me
To find its way to you
At certain times I would
Tell anyone that my love
Could part oceans
That I could climb
Any mountain
Lead with my heart beating
Against my rib cage
My blood rushing to
Every part

It wasn’t until my heart
Stopped thumping
I paused
Suddenly a deafening
Silence
Not just a school boy
With his school boy heart
Anymore
The ocean began to kiss
The shore again
The mountain solitary
No human figure to be seen
In this still
Perfect silence
If I allowed myself to listen
The heart that once thumped
Hard like a tribal drum
Was beating
So gently
But I knew in that moment
My heart
Was trying to find its rhythm
