Heartbeat written by Natalia Aeschliman at Spillwords.com

As the sun went down,
I let you go,
As the feelings show
Of the fool I once was
I stand alone
As the night slowly began to weep
You are no where in sight
As I fall down to my knees
Silence pierces the cold night air
The flames slowly burn your path
As I lay frozen in the uncertainty of the moment
the words you never said
Began to bleed
As everything falls slowly apart…
For a moment,  everything went still
And in the distance I could hear
A strong and radiant beating heart,
Some stranger in the night I thought
Balancing life and love
Stars and rain
And everything in between
That stranger was you
That stranger was me…
Long nights of poetry and piano
Nights of love and dreams
Story telling from your lips
Tattooing your soul on my dreams
As in a silent movie
That’s where I will be,
Waiting for a moment that will never save me
Waiting for the light to shine within.
And the years have passed
And I turned to stone,
I can still hear
The heartbeat…
