Fatal Heart



Leaking life's regrets
from the chest wound
of a torn-apart
broken heart;
she says to thee,
"Here, a bandaid."

  1. I really like this. I don't know if you were going for love or sarcasm or mystery. To me, it spoke all three. Well done!

  2. Yes, you definitely picked up on the correct vibe I was going for. It is a little of all three. :-) The perspective here, btw, is from the man's POV. He's the one with the broken heart, and the woman culprit thinks everything should be fine because she does all these little things to show that she still loves him despite the fact that they are no longer together. AKA, the "bandaid." Alas, however ... the wound is too great!
