Drum Beats

My heart beats traitorously

Louder now in the hours before my end

Than ever before

The pounding of a drum

Loud in my ear

As if to keep me awake

Remind me that I’m living

Here, now

But the pain of life is reminder enough

So as all things must come to an end

I must come to an end

As does every story, poem, and work of art
