Your Human Heart by Fugitive

Spock is resting, and contemplating the importance to him of hearing Jim's heart.  For Pamdizzle, who will understand the true depth of meaning in this poem where it may seem a little incomprensible to others....

With sincere thanks, Fugitive.

Chapter 1 by Fugitive



I rest here, not meditating, lost in thought

With thoughts not as disciplined as they ought

To be, pondering on the depth, the warmth,

The extraordinary fascination that is your heart.


I turn it over from every angle in my mind,

Breathe in and close my eyes, until I find

That I can sense it there before me, beating

Loud and pure in my ear, my defences defeating


Rapid-fire beat, loud and strong

Each pulse of sound, sure and long.

Unlike my own too-rapid beat

Which stems from Vulcan heat.


Yours is slow and steady, in my ear,

Casting aside all doubt, all fear.

My nostrils flare as I sense you are near

And I feel the heart beat that is so dear.


And suddenly, an epiphany makes me inhale

As I realise that I would not be capable

Of surviving without your heart next to mine

As though it has been there… for all time.


I stir in our bed, and you look up and beguile

Me as I see your heart in your eyes

With an openness that truly belies

Your strength, your heart, your smile.


And for once I let myself smile

That you have so openly shown me

This heart of yours, beating all the while

Your heart… all I need to breathe, to be.
