Day 8 – heart

The heart

of the matter

is why he dropped

that ring

into the drain

why she left

his food out to get cold

why the two of them

have not fucked in four long years

the heart is full

of excuses

and resentment

of niggling doubts and shrugging fights

the heart

is sometimes squeezed

in neverending pulse

tight shut beat

it is a lonely liar

dissolving in the chest

missing that spheroid pain

of love
