yellow palpitations

I learnt a new word this morning
while snowflakes were touching the ground
this word means that your heart is beating
because of fear or excitement

and I remember my heart was beating
when i woke up next to you
remember this yellow little building
where my deepest dream comes true


I remember all things fearful:
– when I first danced with you after I had drunk too much whiskey
– when I came home and did not remember your name
– that exciting but frightful mess in all my being
– and the thought that i emerged too late


remember this yellow little building
where my deepest dream comes true
– nothing is too late – i was reading
this morning when i woke up next to you






 —

Ah, nothing is too late,
till the tired heart shall cease to palpitate.

H. W. Longfellow
