If i cant hear it,
You're most definitely
Too far away.
I can always hear it...
Beating strong and rhythmically in tune with mine.
Before you came along,
There were fraudulent heart beats,
claiming to be that one that I longed for so long.
Each one reavealed true intentions among masks.
Each one, killing me a bit more.
I blocked out all the heartbeats around me,
Building a castle of rejection out of the rubble of my sorrow and pain.
Alone in that castle, destroying anyone whom dared near it.
I heard it.
The heartbeat I'd longed for so long.
True, strong and radiant.
The castle walls fell stone by stone with each beat, until
I was surrounded no longer.
You said but three words
And I knew it was you
At long last.
So, to this day, I still listen to that thumping in your chest
Loving every word it whispers to me.
That's why when you say
"If I can't hear your heartbeat, you're too far away.",
Because I will always hear it
No matter what.
