It’s a declaration.
A dare.
To put your heart on the table,
As I did with mine.
And with furrowed brows I waited.
Are you stalling?

And like a ticking time bomb
My heart beats
And s l o w e r til I give up
And waited
For the impeding doom.
That a good bye lies on the table
Where your heart should be
And you didn’t keep your promise,
Not for the second time
You’re the first and only one
To get a second try.

Flash right back to now.
I count my breaths
I listen to my hearbeat.
I looked at the table.
The furrowed brows melted
Into a face touched by honesty
And faith
And trust–
Your heart lies
Next to mine,
And they’re smiling both.
We’re smiling both.
