thump, thump
My heart beats constantly
Young and vibrant
but weakening with each beat
thump...thump...thump...
Barely feel my heart beat beneath my chest
Barely beating
my sixteen year old heart - dying
thump... thump... thump...
Blue fingernails and lips
Gasping for breath in a hospital bed
Weak, so very weak
thump...
Scared to sleep
Afraid I won't wake up
Too weak to stay awake

Flatline
