how many heartbeats

that vibrates my chest?

how many?

i wonder to be exact

how many?

well i sit,

pacing through my thoughts

when all of a sudden,

i figure i quiet my room

and think of you

hearing your voice in

a conversation

i would smile

not thinking of how many heartbeats

there is

i’d just think of you

longer than i know…..
