Victoria S.

Heart

It continues to beat,
But slower and more painfully.
Abused by your ignorance and selfishness,
It finds its way back to me.
With being returned in such condition,
It sits beneath my rib cage,
Refusing to beat, and to feel.
Just a cold mass of tissue,
Waiting for you to appear,
So it can live once again.
