This heart pumps with familiar life
from inside a cage of bone.
A rhythmic beat,
the pacing of two sure feet.

From inside a cage of bone,
there is the flitting of unrest and unease;
the pace of unsure feet,
falling from the lead.

There is a fatal flitting of unrest and unease
that bruises egos and clots dreams.
Now lost from the lead,
this heart yearns to pump familiar life.
