Heartbeat

Number one.
What lies waiting in the third beat
Of a heart:
Lub dub what?

Them in crayon,
Rainbow-brown,
Because I can't stand the blankness
Between your words and,
And I don't want you to see me cry.

Haha, thanks. I always planned to leave it like this. Its sort of experimental, but I wanted to leave it wanting.

lol thats really dumb that they can just edit out words. this is a writing sight, we should be able to express ourselves through whatever words we want.
