[ heartbeat. ]

darkness is all you will ever know—

since the possibility of your freedom have 

been snuffed out like candles on a birthday 

cake. you never saw when the scissors cut the 

strands of the life you barely had time to be acquainted with, 

like distant cousins who finally found each other in passing in a distant road. 

it is not fair that you were not given the chance to grasp 

how a drop of rain felt on moist skin before the invasion 

of a thousand raindrops. or how a dog salivated at the first 

whiff of crispy bacon and fresh squeezed orange juice on a 

Sunday morning. never would you understand the concept 

of trick or treat while hiding your insecurities behind a different 

mask every full moon. or the bells clinking every snowy season 

as glitters of bright red wrapped in goodness met your childlike

greedy eyes. hot cocoa by the warm firewood cocooned in the 

arms of the only man that protected you from the viscous icicle 

of the world’s charm. you would never get the blessed chance to 

gaze with starlike wonder at the only woman who shared the same 

heartbeat as you, prance with ease, leaving cinnamon in her wake. 

but then again maybe death grabbing you by your ankles and staking 

you as prisoner is not so bad. you would never have to lay awake, 

tears flowing down your moistened cheeks with a heart so chattered 

and beyond stitching back together. the constant screams of hate being

thrown towards your tender ears like dodgeball’s being thrown at unlucky 

students picked last. where a nation is divided elephant and donkey, 

black against white and no silver lining. the blues don’t see justice—

just color and the system defends them. all while the soil is stained by the 

tears of civilians. maybe it was not so bad that heaven gained an angel 

that day because the earth was just going to rip into shreds another pure thing 

once again.
