Heart candle

what do i want? what do i want? what do i want?

i try to listen to my heart,

but the clamor


the ClAMOR

of a million tiny hammers

rings in my ears

as they bang against my skull

causing my eyes to water

and drown out my heartbeat



you can’t do it, you can’t do anything

you won’t get what you want

i close my eyes and beg the tiny hammers to stop

take an inhale,

slow exhale.

another inhale…

the hammers pause.

slow exhale.

and then i can hear it

i can hear my heart
