heartbeats

What does you heartbeat sound like now?
Now that you’re lying next to someone else,
Now that you’re being held by arms that are not mine…

I used to know,

Most times I wish I didn’t,
But be careful what you wish for,
Because it all came true on that night you walked away,
And all I’m left with is the sound of you footsteps,

Walking away,
Taking that precious heartbeat with it…
