Squished ~ #Tanka #Prompt

A series of tests
Measuring circulation
Strangling optimism

Every fragile heartbeat squeezed
Fighting for release and life

Inspired by: Ronovan writes weekly prompt #202

Musing: Myocardial ischemia

“I’m just a girl in the world…that’s all you’ll let me be...” Southern California Native who gets in trouble for sarcasm, suffers from bouts of OCD, and listens to an eclectic range of music really, really loud especially while driving too fast. Turn up the Rap, R&B, Punk, Billy, Indie, Alternative, Classic, Folk, Metal, and Grunge, Melodic, Industrial, Electronic, Soul and so on you get the point.
