One Heartbeat - Poem by Jessica Hughes
One could describe our relationship as
a basketball, bungee cord, or yo-yo.
You bounced when the pressure elevated.
Here I sit in a fetal position.
All the things that used to matter
These white walls reassure me, I'm alone again.
There aren't any beautiful decorations and family
portraits to display.
Only empty space I care not to fill.
An effortless disposition on my part___
My heart beats once; it thumps barely enough to
keep me alive.
I would be a fool to start over.
The thought nibbles deep within my conscious.
However, I dare not pursue this endeavor.
I'd rather live in total isolation.
Love will never have the chance to
take my only heartbeat.
