Graceful Heart

The fist shaped ventricular,

Circulating my blood

Keeping even pressure


Except, in fight or flight

Beating too hard

Too fast

Where am I to run


As I lay resting, it slows

Rhythmically beating

Even, without my emotions


Slow and steady pace


If it should ever stop,

My life

Would fall from grace
