The world was beautiful1 min read

I came to listen to you.
To be with you.

I settled on your chest
In the cradle formed by your ribs.

And I listened to you.

Your heart beat a calm, deep rhythm
that drowned me into you.

I closed my eyes and listened to how I drowned.
Sank deeper.
Surrendered to your heartbeat.

I felt how the sound echoed deep inside of you.
Felt its thrum.

And I let it come into me.

I vibrated a moment and saw how beautiful you are.

And it made me happy.

Because now I’m beautiful too. And I smiled.

Your heartbeat gave me wings
to fly towards the sun

even after you’d gone.

And I laughed out loud
for the world was beautiful.
