drum heart

by eloisehendy

i asked you
not with my voice
to hold my pulse
in the palm
of your hand
with my eyes
i asked
at least
i think
i did

it was dark
i thought
maybe
you did not see
me

i had no expectations

maybe
you did not see
me

but you laid your head
where i keep my heart

it was late
or maybe
it was early

it was dark
or maybe
it was getting lighter

i could feel
your pulse
through my skin
