With Every Beat

Rating: 5.0
Pitter-patter, thump, thump
goes the beat of my heart.
Rumple, rumble, churning,
innards feel torn apart.

Shhhh, shhhh lips quiver,
silencing my tawdry pleas.
Blink, blank, tears forming,
descending downward endlessly.

Waaah, waaah, wailing cries,
disappearing within the night.
Tsssk, tsssk, you were wrong,
just like every other fight.

Snap, smack, crackling woes,
all in the name of haste.
Tick, tock, the clock stops,
future years we do now waste.

Bang, boom, pow, of the heart,
that never stopped clinging.
Thump, thump, thump – silence,
a heart no longer singing.
