Space + Time + Noise = Heart

Space

Safe distance,

a personal niche,

room to roam

between here and home.

Time 

Never static,

clock hands wave,

minutes and seconds build

as the day decays.

Noise 

Reoccurring octaves

above my eardrums

abated by pillows

and sleeping pills.

Heart

A space deep inside my chest

where blood races against time

amid the wash of noisy pumps,

my spirit is cleansed and fortified.
