Stronghearting it

He said it was as though
reality wasn’t real
that the world, in fact,
hadn’t crashed down
that the storm hadn’t really
shaken their foundation
that her heart was, in fact,
still completely and fully in tact.

Well shit. Thank God.

He said that those monitors,
they weren’t even real
that the beeping and frantic tics
were imaginary
that the irregular beating in my chest
was, in fact, completely normal
that we were fine
every piece and part perfectly in line.

Damn. How lucky.

Then he said that our Time,
it wasn’t even real
that those clocks we kept close
were always broken
that the only ticking to ever
fully count on
is from the one that actually feels
undoubtedly and completely real.
