Between Heartbeats


My heart feels
 your words
 kiss me in the wind.

I cannot
release my soul
from your memory.

Between each
of my heartbeats
there is a lonely space.

Your name
rests on my lips.
I won’t speak goodbye.

Such a great sense of curiosity takes me with your words. I guess the reader always wonders at the author's inspiration and appreciates in a way not knowing, because it lets them imagine.
