His Bellowing Heart

skin to skin
I keep trying to imagine a greater heaven
but i have yet to find it
such safety and purity in your heart beat

two lost souls finding solace in each other's ghosts
building temporary homes, hearts binding
but only for the evening

you're so close, we're sharing breathe
the music blaring in the background
housekeeping rushing from room to room
nothing can dimmer the beautiful bellowing sound of your heartbeat
