Heart Stop



Love is this train that arrives docking at my heart
Slowing its beat and showing me
Deep lights that filter through its windows
Shining on my soul

Lifting me off the ground, carrying me to a new destination
Love is a traveler and a teacher
Going places I never thought I could go to
Onward down its spiraling tracks

It does not ask anything of me but my truth
My beating heart is the ticket to board
The finite beats are the gasoline that one day will run its course dry
