Heartbeat.

heartbeat_1_original

I lay my head

On your chest,

Listening to your heartbeat.
_____________________

The high that you give me

Is no small feat.
_____________________

I stop mid-step

To stare at blank walls,
_____________________

Your love paints pictures

Wherever my eyes fall.
_____________________

It’s crazy, but magnificent,

This love could only be

Heaven-sent.
_____________________

Like a week full of Fridays,

Like electricity in Nigeria

That lasts all day.
_____________________

Like an expensive bowl of ice cream,

I savour and treasure you,

_____________________
The heart and soul

Of my dreams.
_____________________

My heartbeat,

You breathed heat

Into my cold heart.
