Love

heartbeats

leaning against the arm
feeling your chest pressed against my ear
I could hear everything inside
I could hear your heartbeat
Beating faster, in harmoniums song

I listened to you
As I got close
I was selfish
I wanted to hear
It beat
Because I was near
I wanted to hear something to feel wanted
Instead
I realize now it was supposed to be significant
that it meant you were real
And it was all the proof that was needed
