THE LUB DUB RUB
(2/8/17)

sitting
in the dark

listening
to my heart

the only noise
throbbing
in this silence

knowing
that there are
billons
of other hearts
beating
right now

realizing
that years
have passed
since I've been
close enough
to hear another's
heartbeat
in the night

maybe
just accepting
that they're out
there
should be sufficient
comfort

of course
just accepting
these things
is why I'm
alone
in the dark
now

wondering
why knowing
is never
enough
