Archive for the tag “heartbeat”

waiting on my cue


from the bottom of my heart
there is much bleeding
noticeable but unseen
to the naked eye

offers flood in
but negotiations break down
the stitchers either
went on strike
or simply headed home

in the meantime
most everyone knows
what happens next
how the satiation
& the emptiness collide
creating a once-in-a-lifetime
celebratory occurrence

living the high life


the world opens up and
closes in a heartbeat

you knew what it was like
to be on top of the world
reaching up and touching the sky
challenging your ego
and your super ego
to go even higher

there are many ways
to reach improbable heights
whether legal or otherwise
naturally or artificially
or simply metaphysically

there are many ways
to reverse the trend and dive
deeper than any man
has ever dared gone

neither heights nor depths exist
where you are destined to reside
once the world opens up
and closes in a heartbeat
