beats

You make my heart race.

It’s like the moment
you’re driving down the highway
and you see a cop in your rearview mirror.
And it doesn’t matter if you’re actually doing anything wrong,
It’s the same shock of adrenaline that only soothes
once the police car passes you and goes on its way.

It’s like the moment
you’re sitting in your car
with a boy you’ve had a crush on forever
and you suddenly realize he’s about to kiss you.
It’s that rush of emotions
right before your lips touch for the first time.

It’s like the moment
at the peak of a roller coaster
just before you know you’re about to drop.
It’s that swooping feeling in your stomach
just before the fall.

It’s the first time someone twines their fingers with yours
and your stomach flutters.
It’s hearing “I love you” for the first time,
and the breathless way it makes you feel.
It’s the moment after a fight when you realize how trivial it was,
and the laughter that follows.
It’s the moment someone comes home
after being away for far too long,
and you feel like you can’t hold them close enough.

You make my heart race.
