To Remember

Beat…beat…beat.

The heart
ticks…ticks…ticks.

A whoosh of wind,
flattened to the ground,
breath whisked away.

Heart beats..beats..beats.

Fingers tingle,
eyes shut tight,
hot air sucked out of lungs.

Beat.beat.beat.

Faster,
the drum speeds up,
rushes towards explosion,
towards imminent collapse.

Beatbeatbeat.
Beatbeatbeat.

Words whiz through ears, sending shattering messages to the heart.

Beatbeatbeatbeatbeat…beatbeatbeatbeatbeat…it goesandgoesandrunsandfleesandcollides
like bubbles on fingertips.

How it feels to remember you.
