The Paper Heart…

crumpled-heart
On the floor lies
A forgotten heart
A crumpled tissue
Used and discarded
Lifeless,
Loveless,
Red.

I take it in my hand
Straighten the wrinkles
Scribbled all over
A tale Blotted with
Tears,
Fears,
Blood

I tear it to bits
And throw it up
The wind carries off
As I walk on…
Hopeless,
Heartless,
Dead…
