A Heartbeat
Anika, Age 15, Miami, FL
                      A heartbeat caught
in a rhythm of bliss,
acoustic discord
uttered from the abyss.
The piano in your soul
that i played that night
with perfectionist gloves
satin, white.

And as you sat beside me,
I felt your spirit dance.
Your effortless grace
accompanied by that of mine.
Together we performed pirouettes,
and my fingers pranced
to the beat that affirmed our existence.

An anthem rooted in our bones
and carried on a current
flowing mildly through thinning veins.
