The Throbbing Thought

By , Indianapolis, IN
Tha Thump Tha Thump Tha Thump… Echoes faintly through my chest
Tha thump tha thump tha… Hands scramble to feel the beat through my breast
Eyes wide, there’s a shortness of breath
The blood drains from my body as I rise up in bed

“Not tonight Lord! Please don’t let me die tonight…”
Is whispered from a heart filled with fright
My head spins as I stare into the night
The returned beat lets me know that everything’s alright

Tha Thump Tha Thump Tha Thump… Echoes faintly through my chest
Tha thump tha thump tha… I awake again with hands clenching over my breast
Like before I experience a shortness of breath
Blood still drained, skin now cold, I’m up again in bed

I text a few night owls hoping to calm my nerves
My last thought before I fell asleep being, “What a Mighty God we serve.”
