And the Heart that beat within me

most will mistake for Mine.

But I knew where It truly rests-

It is thine, and thine- and- Thine.

The sun is shining,

white hot and blinding,

and the temperature climbs

slowly above freezing,

and warmth seeps into the earth,

into my skin,

and I feel everything move,

though nothing is moving.

I guess it’s because there is so little-

sun, sky, snow, spruce,

and me- therefore I feel

in tune, connected,

as if each of these things

has a heart

that beats in tune with mine.

I sense there is something you could tell me,

but won’t, seeing as we are far apart.

I rest on the twilight edge of this city,

You rest on the other side. I hear your heart

echoing across the distance between us,

the expanse filled with amber and neon.

The beat stumbles toward me, shreds the hush.

I close my eyes and listen to it– wan

as an ill baby, but a comfort, a song

that reaches me and pries nightmares from my mind.

I sit staring out the window, and ask how long

until I see you again? The wind

offers no reply. Only blatant noise.

Though muffled, your heartbeat still pierces this void.
