I have sliced out my heart

It now sits in a carved glass dome

On the bedside table

Glowing ever so lightly in the dark

Every time your name is evoked

Contrary to what I thought

It did not stop beating

I did not stop breathing

We both, did not stop crying

A gaping hole remains in my chest

A void that seems like an endless pit

Waiting for the day when we are ready

To meet again, to mend our hurt

To beat again

Me and my heart
