Got here about an hour ago, been a while since
my last camping trip. Suffice to say that this was a long
time coming. While working the tent, I noticed a fading
beat coming from the woods. Curiosity got the best of my
feet, so I followed them. The sound grew in volume the
deeper I walked in. The more I fed on it, the closer I got to
being lost. But I couldn’t stop, I had to know its origin. As
it got louder, I started running towards it’s direction. I had
to be crazy, leaving everything behind to go on the blind chase.
What if it was a trap? Then again, what if someone needed
my help? Didn’t matter, had to keep this going. Tripping
over the root of a tree, I found myself laid out on the ground.
Slowly regaining consciousness, there it was staring back at
me. A mystery in the form of a she and she was gorgeous.
Smiling affectionately, she looked into my eyes with confusion,
‘are you alright?’ And in that moment I knew one thing,
I’d spend the rest of my life listening to that heartbeat.
