Only Hard Hearts Shatter

apple-570965_1920 (1)

All I know is my heart never breaks

It soaks up what I see and know and feel

Swells until I fear it will burst

Heavy as an anchor it sinks me down

I drown at the bottom of myself

breathing bubbles in my blood

I cut out my heart and float back to the surface

But the damn thing keeps growing back
