Heartbeats

Photo by Ksenia Yakovleva

Sometimes I feel like
I know
what you’re thinking —
that even when I’m leaving
our hearts keep on beating;
keeping time,
despite our best deceiving.
Still, we keep on drinking
until we find some meaning
in the feel
of someone else’s sheets
and
in the space that’s now between us.
When the worst just keeps
repeating
and the wounds,
they keep on bleeding,
life is finite,
forever fleeting…
