#361 (hummingbeat)

Next

to my heart

nestled in the hollow

of my chest there is

another tiny one,

unheard, unseen

yet I can feel its delicate

beat like a hummingbird

fluttering between my ribs.

Whenever I overflow,

be it bliss or fear it guides me

to my song again, like

a dwarven metronome built

inside my core.
