The heart that should have shattered
by Eli J Tod
I cannot seem to find
The words I had rehearsed
Keep flowing through my mind
This smile here is genuine
This love of mine though-
Dont worry; Ill be just fine
When I figure out where to go
Im drowning in the oxygen
The excess is too much for me
I already went there and back again
What happened to my grip on reality?
Make more than a word
Here in ink
Are we supposed to
I seem to have misplaced my heart
I don’t recall how I should feel
I notice now we drifted apart
Please tell me so I know its real
This nonsense from my fingers
Oddly fits inside my head
Its twilight there that lingers
Angelic demons that must be fed
Hollow, a gap in my being
So scarlet! What’s love?
Where are these angles singing?
Have they risen from above?
If you say you have the solution
I will tell you you're insane
Because this? Its just pollution
Burning thru my brain.
