I have been ignoring my heart for so long
But now I am finally learning to listen.
I know that my heart beats slower and normally when I am calm
And I know it beats faster when I am alarmed.
But lately it has not been beating normally at all,
I asked someone to listen but they had inadequate time
No time to listen, saying it did not speak!
I ask myself, how could he love if he cannot listen?
I know my heart skips a beat when I am in love
I know it skips a beat when I am anxious
But still he could hear nothing.
Why is that? Could you have stopped listening or could I have stopped existing?
Well that is plenty to think about.
My heart beats slower and normally when I am calm
And if you truly want to hear it
You must listen.
