Heartbeat


I search

a darkened

room

for

the other

half

of my

heart

I hear

it

knocking

behind

walls

of flesh

my heartbeat

keeping

time

like

the tides

hidden

I draw

my palms

across

the plains

of torsos

across

mountaineous

chests and

waterfalls

of stomachs

pulsing

growing

louder

I

reach

but

never

find

the heart

that

beats

as

mine
