                                                                I worry that the heartbeats

will no longer be beats

but soft thumps

 

That they will not pound

against the ribs

nearly breaking them

because

you’re so strong

and

want to be so free

That now the heart-thumps

lightly tap

having given up on

the want to be free

or

maybe that is

your choice

of freedom then

 

The kind that comes

when

the heartbeats turn to

heart-thumps

and the heart-thumps

turn to

nothing

 

And the kind of freedom

when the ribs nearly break-

crack

with the will to be free

and turns to acceptance

of the ribs

stopping you

from

living stronger

 

Is this the kind of freedom you want?

 

If so take me with you

to show me where you are

so that I may take you with me

to show you my freedom

 

If your heart may stop

let me take you with me

so that I may lay my hands upon your heart

and show them what love is

so I can start the beats again

 

Please Please

 

Let me show you my freedom

 

Please Please

Let me show you mine

so that we can be free together

 

Freedom after all has two e’s

so that we could be together

and we can live

                                                                                 together
