because there's not enough heart-themed imagery in the world

Recommended Posts

heartbeats.

if there is not room for all the things you need to say
shrink down to the size of insignificance 
and pay attention to what you're made of. 
 
atrium. 
here you will find 
scar tissue and building block memories
in a castle of too-sharp pain. there
is something beautiful in broken things,
learn to
appreciate it
and maybe maybe maybe
some of the loose puzzle pieces will fall into place.
 
veins. 
the things you tried to forget are here.
when she doesn't talk to you anymore,
come here. 
when you're afraid of losing him, 
come here. 
wrap your shoulders in warm-breathed nights of unholy confession, in
arms covered in sharpie because we're too young for tattoos.
live in the past for a moment or two
while you still have the chance. 
 
ventricles. 
step inside and put your hands behind your back
clasp your fingers like you're trying to keep from falling apart
and watch. 
if depression is a chasm this place is a mountain
dreams like blue-white water froth 
and your soul is an ocean.
maybe if you squint your stained-glass eyes and hold the breath you're already losing
there might still be hope. 
 
vena cava.
fill your lungs with stale air and 
breathe out something fresh. 
don't shake too hard. 
take one last look
at the twisted ground you don't understand.
like preschool art or a homemade card
it's probably worhtless
but someone still cares.
