magnesium.

simplistic,
regulated
heart rhythms.

touch the sides;
breathe deep
and wide.

you’ve been playing
catch‑up
all your life.

have you
ever even
touched it?

when the
moon shines,
does it touch you?

i feel
the blood;
tearing your veins.

my fingers
trace the hole
in your heart;

but the stutter;
it shocks
it stuns.

and i return.
beaten wings
and bruised lips;

are the only
sign, your heart
was once alive.

have you
ever even
touched it?

simplistic,
regulated
heart rhythms.
