Musings on Holes and Hearts

blackheart2aThey said there’s a hole in your
Heart. Physical, ya know, not
Emotional, I must tell myself.

Laughing at it won’t make it go
Away, won’t take away the knowing,
The ache, the break or genetic mistake.

A shadow on the x-ray, port or stern,
I can’t say.  A shadow perhaps fore of
The Day the hole strays from you to me.

They’ll say there’s a hole in your
Heart. Emotional, ya know, not
Physical. They won’t need to tell.
