no other rhythm

she stands
paused in reflection
eyes falling away
with concentrated breath
listening to yesterday’s morning song
and it sings to her
tracing fingers
across words on skin
lightly read
yet deeply memorized
splattered lyrics
overgrown throughout the walls
within her heart
like moss spreading
on unturned rocks
it plays over
and over
and over
her heartbeat
no other rhythm
moved her like she did
