The true story of heartbreak

Still Beating

by miriammacdonald

It is not flat on a page cut neatly in two;

even shattered into a million countless pieces the edges are not sharp

The edges are not sharp,

the breaks are not so thin and smooth. It is not jigsawed to be put back together

The breaks are valleys;

The parts will never come together again

Look. Do you see it?

Here in my hands still beating. It is a messy thing

It drips, and just keeps beating.

It bleeds and just keeps beating

Like tears from a well that never runs dry,

the eyes keep crying

the eyes can keep crying; and so it is with the heart

broken bleeding and still beating.

@bernardtwindwil Your words means so much to me. Thank you! The feelings are raw and stark, so from your kind response I know I have done my job as a poet and laid out my heart

Darkly descriptive doesn't even touch the surface in describing this macabre masterpiece. The visions of using a physical heart as a metaphor for an emotional hear were stark and raw. I loved it. Great work.
