metronome

it’s silent
a hush has fallen
ambient noise
turned to nothing
as if someone hit mute
on the universe

then slowly
a soft sound
a gentle
thump woosh
thump woosh
thump woosh

the only thing
that breaks the silence

your heartbeat
in my head
a metronome
keeping time
rocking me to sleep

i fall
into your rhythm
let it cascade over me
through me
until
i can find
no separation
between
you and i
