Heartbeat

Heartbeat 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.
