– foolishly –

Heart beats faster than a bullet…

yet it beats out of time?

Another sign of little ole me…

thinking foolishly.

Mad thought, so why do it…

leaving sense behind? 

Staying on course so I can see…

a little sanity. This


blood it rumbles and it tumbles,

beyond pitter-pat. The

lines ‘tween love and lust I fumble,

so I can’t go back.


Tell my friends how I blew it…

in this lane of mine? 

Won’t let veins clot up and bleed…

thinking foolishly.



D.J. Whisenant

  1. This reads so well. The rhythm and cadence match the physicality of your words, and the emotion behind them.
