looking back for the matching beat

looking behind every so often, to see
her smile, and to make sure she was
still with him. But soon, his pace
turned into a jog. He continued to look
back to find her – her reassurance, her
unconditional love. She kept up behind
him for some time, following his heart
by its matching beat, unable to let him
out of her world. Some time later, the
quiet surroundings made him numbly
look back. Though, this time, her heart
had let him go, and she was nowhere
to be found.
