Heartbeat

 Have you ever just laid on your back
Fingers in the grass
And your heart in your ears?

A thumping song in your skull,
The pulse and vibration
Of your hopes and your fears?

The noise keeps me grounded
It helps me to remember
That I am still here.

Or are we just dust 
Adrift in the wind
A colorful dust of smiles and tears.

But if I was stardust 
I'd live in the sky
And I'd keep my heart near,

Because I love my
Full body heartbeat
And I rely upon,
The song in my ears.The heart in my chest, is never at rest.

This poem is about: 
Me
Our world
