only a heart
it beats
its red
its firm

only a heart
in a body
wore down
by lifes griefs

only a heart
with a sorrow
wrapped around
that aches
as it beats so loud

only a heart
that hurts
in a chest
that can't breath
through the tears
that seem to fill
a heart to

only a heart
of a soul
that tore
so long ago
that the beat
sounds eerie
and the breath
sounds short

and the eyes
show a heart
thats empty

only a heart
which they
say can't break
