Tale Tale Heart
Sunday, July 21, 2013

It's amazing, the capacity a heart has to absorb hurt
and yet keep beating
I can feel it, inside me.  This aching quivering mass
thump thump, thump thump
banging a painful tattoo against my chest

I imagine it bloody
raw gaping wound pulsating in rhythm to the cadence of my tears
a sad dance of quiet despair, hidden from sight

I am walking wounded
so numb and yet so raw
every nerve ending screaming outloud
what quietly is killing my heart

If i could erase the memories
scribble you off my mind
i'd  eradicate you completely without a second thought

Instead I just go on living
with your crimes inside my head
my heart a living legacy to love won and lost
and I wonder how you live with you
how easily you forgot
