heart beat ❦ heartbreak

the sound of  a heart beating

lub dub  lub dup  lub dub

the sound when we become afraid

lubDUBlubDUPLUBdubLUBdupLUBDUBLUBDUPLUBDUBLUBDUP

when a heartbeat stops forever

the silence is deafening

when twenty tiny hearts stop beating forever

millions of  hearts break


“Human Heart Beat”  as a person becomes afraid

    ..you, for sure, have a good heart that beats nothing but kindness for doing this… i really really feel sorry for the incident in Connecticut… the news were in viral all over the world for someone from Philippines like me not to feel sympathy for this tragedy… my prayers are all for ’em… thank you for sharing this…

  2. The silenced heart beats brings it home almost too sharply. I keep thinking that the damage done by that man is incalculable. How will the parents and siblings recover? What might all those children have grown up to do, and be? I can’t think about it for too long, or it just makes me too sad.

  3. the silence that follows the last heart beat is definitely loud, and heart breaking for sure….i agree with kelvin in that this shows your heart and much thanks dani….smiles.

  4. oh dang…that caught me cold…i was smiling about the sounds that you put in and then….oh dang…tightly penned dani…tears…

  5. Our hearts are beating though its been broken yesterday ~ Hope you are well Dani ~

  6. Well expressed, Dani.

  7. Yes, a million hearts break. Thanks, Dani. You nailed it.

  8. dani,
    1. I’m now under medication to help maintain regular heart beats. No 2 persons can experience the same thing as the heart is particular and personal. The tests may be the same ( ECG, holter, MRI ) but the results and ‘cure’ are different. Imperative regular checks are necessary.
    2. I grieve and feel for the families of those young ones. They didn’t have a chance. It was such a sad episode. There were heroic stories of those adults killed. They must have faced terrible choices before they were gunned down. We have no way of knowing about how brave they were!

  9. Yes, this is sadly so true. This human heart is far more than an organic pump.

i'd love to hear from you ♥ thanks! {comments must be approved before they are visible}
