Stop! Heart Stop!

Stop that ticking

Never skipping

A single beat

All these years

Drumming in my ears

Thump, thump, thump

Stop, I have had enough

Tired of your persistent

Noisy existence

Tired of your incessant beating to some

Cannibal rhythm

Stop the ticking

Stop the thumping

Stop, I’ve had enough

Let me rest

Sleep in silence

Free of your

Bullying

Boisterous pace.
