A Heartbeat Away (Poem)

It’s not that my heart skipped a beat
You actually stopped it completely

And yet somehow I’m still alive
I thought for sure I would have died

Here I am blindly diving into this sea
This leap of faith could cost me everything

Hard to exaggerate when my mind’s already blank
You deviously teased my thoughts away

That smile is worth about ten thousand kisses
I pray you’ll let me be the one who’ll give them
