“Art is the only way to run away without leaving home.”

— Twyla Tharp (Dancer/Choreographer)


My hear, my heart, beats true.
It beats, it beats, for you.
You stole my breath, left me to gasp;
Oh love, oh love, it's you

But the beeps, the beeps, they're fast,
And this breath might be your last.
The lights, they blind our eyes.
After the clash, then come the lies:

"Don't worry," he says, "I'll be okay."
Nothing more is said, especially no goodbyes.
And the sirens seem far, forever and a day.
I having nothing left, nothing but to pray

My love, my love, they're pulling you from me;
My heart, my heart, with you it longs to flee...


The author's comments:
This was a piece inspired by my sister, who, having seen my writer's block, offered this as a topic to my poem:
"Write about a couple, and the guy gets in an accident, but leave the ending open, so you don't know whether he dies or not..."
