I wrote you a love song,
but I got the words all wrong because I was trying to move along,
to the beat.

I forgot about the rhythm,
I couldn’t really listen,
Because I couldn’t escape
the heart focused on
the beat.

So I listened instead
to a heavy heart humping the ribcage of a soul spread out searching for his honest smile.

I found it and gave it to you.
You thought I a fool.
Or, at least, I think you did.
But I never know what you’re thinking.
I only know what you say.

Heartbeat rhythm today.
