a heart that beats for me


There’s a heart out there and it beats for me. It pumps blood through veins and he doesn’t know it yet but it pumps for me.

When you’re young, love comes easy. To trust in the frailty of strangers, to believe there’s a net when you leap. But now there are bills to pay, days to seize, and too many men gone by morning.

Yet in the still of night, after I hang up my hangups and wash off the day’s dirt and regrets, I lie awake and hear the beating of a heart – a heart that beats for me.

This and other 100-word stories in Project 0.1.

  1. I suddenly put my hand onto my chest as I read the last lines.... A good reminder for my lonely soul.

    1. kalansaycollector: I think it's interesting na ganiyan interpretation mo. I always thought that if soulmates existed, you could hear their heartbeat from miles away pag sobrang tahimik. Not sure how or even why. But I like your twist. If there should be a heart that's beating for me, it had better be my own. :) That's what's fun about limiting yourself to 100 words. Ang daming room for ambiguity.

    2. hahaha actually ang interpretation ko is you know someone's heart, your soulmate, is beating for you but as you grow older and wiser, you start to listen to your own heartbeat. and that's okay. haha yeah im such an overthinker. lol
