On A Heartbeat

On a heartbeat of my mind

To the rhythm of your touch

All those things I left behind

In some heated rush


And I'm caught up in a whirlwind once again

My feet are off the ground

And I feel as though I'm flying once again

Spinning down


Things seem surreal and hazed

My passion screams with glee

Bounding, sensing everywhere

My reason on its knees


Deceived and done in once more

By a passion deep inside

All these feelings coming forth

Nowhere left to hide
