A thud.
And here you are,
A rush of blood to the head
And I am knocked off my feet.

Your eyes pierce into my soul
I stop to catch my breath.

A thud.
I crash
Into an ocean of fear
Of how hard it hits me.

As I look into your eyes
The waves I feared are now beautiful
I jump back in
A thud
And again I'm drowning
Gasping for air
Amidst an overwhelming rush
The world stops for a moment
And the waters calm.
A thud
Like a burst of light
I see my dreams through your eyes
I am overwhelmed
By the serenity I find in them.
A thud
And again I fall
But in the silence,
You always catch me.

My fear and my hope,
You are my heartbeat.
