Please Slow Heart - 2005

My heart is racing
beating out a rhythm
that my arms and legs struggle to keep up with
as I'm tapping my feet and
drumming my fingers
to the song you are making my body play.
All words are lost
as I struggle to keep
the butterflies in my stomach from flying out my mouth.
My brain keeps slowing
as my breath quickens
with every inch your warmth moves closer to mine.
Please heart
please slow.
