Those days when I hardly exist.

Sometimes, I'd like to silence my heart.
It seems that this organ inside of me
works too hard; pumps too loud;
resonates like a beating bass drum
from underneath my skeleton.

Sometimes, it is the only sound I hear
in the room. It is the only reminder
that I'm alive. I'm alive.
