Heart Attack

Written by: Dima N.

Breathless gasps 
Agonizing spasms
Ice-cold sweat beads
Fingers clutch a fading heart, palpitating with grief
In a moment, the rapacious pain recedes
Burdened by scorn and disbelief
Fingers unclasp as the beads disperse
As the pressure ascends to give way to relief
Vows of friendship relinquish their crown to deceit
Don’t reminisce… you’ll risk an arduous repeat

                            Betrayal… a lifelong heart attack
