it's so easy for you to
ask for my heart
only to kick me in my empty chest
without looking up even once
at a face streaming with tears,
it can flood your very existence...
at a pain so visible,
it can sear right through you...
at a love so open,
one can't help but melt in return.
Don't bother looking now.
My eyes are vacant.
And there are maggots
where the heart
used to be.
