Heart beats

Heartbeats are not like monitors

Beeping over your head.

They are like musical instruments

Playing the finest tunes to please you.

However, they may be the violin sometimes

And the drum at other times.

You may be the cynosure of all eyes

Or the black sheep of society,

Yet, once you place your trust

In your heartbeats, oblivious of the fact

Of what others think about you,

Your heartbeat will add meanings, multi-layered

To your tiny and yet so beautiful heart.

Your heartbeats have the guts to face

The penumbras of modern complex experiences

And the grace to appreciate arts,

Well-crafted, engaging and contemplative

That stimulate the aesthetic sense of people.

When breasts are caressed softly,

The heartbeats increase rhythmically,

When lips are touched with masculinity,

The feminine in the heart beats lovingly

And when the hips are touched soothingly,

The heartbeats dance musically.

    The poem is a nice relief in the midst of catastrophic circumstances bringing to surface the essential human trait and capacity to love and be loved.
