Break me

My heart doesn’t beat

It flutters beyond the bones of my chest

Shaking my ribs and my soul

Beyond control.

It feels hollow

Where blood used to flow

Filling veins and spirits

That now drift on misused breaths

My heart does not recognize me

No longer feeling my hum

She no longer sings

Or calls out to the sea

Sitting motionless inside of me.
