Fact: A Hummingbird's Heart Beat 1200 times a Minute

Fact: a hummingbird’s heart beats 1,200 times a minute
But you make mine go the speed of light.
Should be close to exploding,
But it refuses to put up a fight.
Sweetest addiction,
Much more powerful than fiction
And yet to some, the depiction
Sounds desperate
But it’s just that much more separate
From what we’ve ever known
Been taught
Seen or heard or bought.
Simply miraculous!
The incredulous can just stuff it for all I care
Because I’ve discovered it doesn’t matter how or where
When or why
It’s pretty dang obvious
-and I won’t lie-
That without you, life would be nothing.
