A Beat


The gentle beating of her heart
is a balm to my soul’s aches.
I burn inside when we’re apart,
a thirst that’s never slaked.

She shies so softly from my smiles,
her brown eyes dance away.
She’s had her freedom for a while,
but now it’s time to play.

A response to Jade Wong’s poem, A Heart. Check it out!
