Saving My Heart's Life

 

Years from now

will I have put you back

into my flimsy chest

will you reach out again

through my eyes

my fingertips

to soothe familiar wounds

of other terrified

hearts?

‚Äč

Or will you huddle

a flawed ruby

in a stone bed

and what will I stuff

around you

so nothing ever

touches you

ever

ever

ever

again
