Heartbeat

on

It had been a rather unusual day,

My heart behaved like it did never before.

The agitation was more than I could imagine,

I was completely shaken to the core.

Everything was normal and as usual,

As another non-eventful day began.

But out of nowhere and with no warning,

I felt like a completely defeated man.

My heartbeat kept racing up and faster,

For a moment, I thought it was gonna burst.

Felt a large unswallowable lump in my throat,

This kinda experience was definitely my first.

There was no sweating or any dry mouth,

Neither any untamable anger nor any fear.

My mind could not exactly comprehend,

For its counterpart’s abnormal behavior.

Seeing me like this, a caring person advised me,

To steady my breath and calm my heart.

Suggested me to filter my mixed emotions,

And untangle the knot part by part.

Focused and determined, I sat in the lotus position,

Breathed in and out slowly with closed eyes.

Instead of slowing down and listening to me,

My bloody heart’s beat just only did rise.

Sooner than expected, I collapsed on the floor,

The heart still rushing and my body went cold.

Unable to breathe properly, I gasped for air,

The time slowed down and silence did enfold.

An hour passed by and another one too,

I kept looking at the clock as the time went by.

Even after so much time had passed,

I couldn’t find an answer to the why.

“What happened dear?”, asked the mind to its fellow,

“Tell me the reason and let’s sort it out together.”

Instead, it just decided to keep running non-stop,

Burning and crying and not listening to anyone ever.
