heart strings


blood red strings that tie me to you,
swell with every beat of my heart and yours.
tied round and round on our beating hearts,
binding us together though we are miles apart.
these lifelines that we cling to as days go by,
are fed by love that even distance can’t stop.
these knots we tie we hope won’t unravel,
but instead grow stronger as we fall more in love with each other.
until the time comes that we can be together,
to live our lives with one another.
