Cross my heart and hope to die

Cross my heart and hope to die

A Poem by Rivaxorus

 You start to get this feeling
and it starts in your hands

It travels down into your stomach
and leaves you in knots

But there's one thing you can't deny -
it's the beating of your heart

You can clearly feel it
like it's going to rip out

You cross your hands -
and hope to die

Because you know what this is
its your mind

Author's Note

Mind can play powerful tricks. Worse than physical anything. Good Imagery and the construction.
