attack

beating,
lub
dub
lub. dub. lub. dub.

pumping.
pump. pump.

race.
racing.

thumping,
like fists rattling against the jail bars of my ribs
pulsating grossly against my chest

palpitations
p al p i tatio ns pa l p i t tat i o n s

palpitationsbeatingracingpumpingthumpingrattling

the blood that courses no where,
erratic
scrambling to find reason

i can’t breathe
icantbreathe

i canticanticant

i am stifled by the air
it holds its heavy hand over my mouth

exhale
you say
slowly

slowly exhale

inhale.
exhale.

lub.
hold my hand
dub. 
please,
lub. 
be kind
dub. 
be gentle.

beating,
finally,
lub
quietly
dub
calmly.
lub
i love–
dub.
