The Sound Of Your Heart
I walked in with the resolution of one sent
on an unhappy errand
a chore best done quickly.
Your eyes turn to my direction and your gaze
locked my shocked stare in a loveless embrace.
Not being able look away or blink away
the accusations on your rasping breath I bent,
to kiss your pallid cheek hello.
The high steady beeping of the machine signalling
the beat of your treacherous heart
The steady flow of paper from the ECG charting the troughs and crests
of your heart now stabilised beating only as it should...
Wordlessly your hand reached for mine
