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.
