Heartbeat

Poem By Theresa Haffner

heartbeat
yes i still have one
heartbeat
let me know that i’m alive
heartbeat
a primordial rhythm
heartbeat
the pulse of life

heartbeat
ancient tribal music
heartbeat
the cry of the blues
heartbeat
submerged emotion
heartbeat
longing to be true

heartbeat
blood is rushing
heartbeat
hear it in my ears
heartbeat
throb of passion
heartbeat
measuring the years

heartbeat like a drum
heartbeat like a river
heartbeat soft and tender
heartbeat like a whisper

as long as the heart still beats
we are all one
as long as the heart still beats
we are not alone
as long as the heart still beats
we are bound to the same beginning
as long as the heart still beats
we share a common soul

and when the heartbeat ends
and when the heartbeat ends
another heartbeat begins

on our way to the city
we encountered the remains of other travelers
whose journeys once traversed our same terrain

The Meaning Of Love

At first love makes you blind,
But in the end it teaches you to see.
What is the meaning of love?
It will not be what you expected.

Blue

sitting in the parked car
in the parking lot outside Pioneer Market at 12: 30 A.M.
writing in my notebook on blue paper
