Heartbeat

Heartbeat

between one heartbeat and the next
is all the time i ever needed to fall in love with you
with everything that is you
and so i fell

it's the time where i worshipped the magnificence that you are
the time where i dreamt of you wrapping your arms around my waist
of your hands warming mine in the frigid winters
of your lips leaving blazing trails across my back

it's the time where the faith i had in us wavered
the time where the demons of my doubt were louder than your silvery soft voice
yet i held onto what we were
yet i held onto what we could have been

i fell for everything that is you
i fell for everything that you could have been
and as i fell
so did the sands of time

a time that ran out
a time that left us with stars for scars
a time where the crimson twine tying our fates together had been ripped apart
a time where, for once, between one heartbeat and the next, i did not fall for you
