Beats

Put your hand on my chest and feel the beats.
Fast. Fast. Fast.
Slow.
Can you feel it like this?

Watch the clock and time the beats.
Fast. Fast. Fast.
Slow.
Can you see it like this?

The beats of time are skewed when I’m with you.
One second the sun is rising and next second the moon is shining.
But here I am lying on the bed with you.
Time passes by as if it is never ticking.

As I feel the beats of my heart pacing,
not realising that my lips are curving.
Feeling that tingle as I feel your lips exploring,
that warmth as I feel your touch lingering.

Let the time ticks to its own beats, while we both stay here.

Stay with me, love, because you are mine.
After all, you’re the one who makes my heart beats fast and slow at the same time.
