Stitches On The Heart - Poem by Yekaterina Bezpalaya

I have this vacancy right here
Softly whisper your words into my ear
And watch the hole shrink
Fades away
Save your smile for a cloudy day

Do you know what an earthquake you’re causing
Rearranging pieces
Shifting tectonic plates
Fit the key to the lock
Turn the switch
How bright the light

When you’re gone
Paint a smile
The world is watching
Too much to risk

Cross my door
Acrylic is wiped off the face
Two harmonies set to an eternal tune
God how we sing
World turns to listen
Trying to interfere
Hide inside the beauty
Hum quietly until they’re prepared

That same song
Opposite hearts beating at the same pace
Waiting for that special moment
Never plagued by fear
Right by my side
Whispering sweetly
Reassuring to never leave me in the dark
Never I you

Without us
In our worlds
No sun
No rain
If apart
Magnetize us
Keep the candle burning

Meanwhile you keep stitching
Sewing the seams together
Hearts connected at the core
Like a red summer cherry
Connected at one pit

You’re not aware
Filling in application
Fit for the job
Hired at will
Fill the void
Have one heart to give
Sufficient for me

Abolished misery
Found an exit sign for pain
Not suicide
But live every day
Given an angel
Can’t let me die
Refuses to let up
Erase the dark
Grin a mile wide

Embrace tightly
Depart only to dream
Turning out better than expected
Liking the fairytale
Living it
Converting it to reality
Ignore “The End.”


This is just the beginning my love.
