heart of steel

heart once made of stone
now made of steel
like a sieve draining every
ounce of joy and love
ever contained in that
hard cold organ once held
firmly within your chest

now it lays slowly beating
at your feet, pumping out
the last bits of evidence
we ever existed, waiting
for one final “aahhh”

without it now you carry
on, that weight lifted from
your chest, I am left to pick
up the pieces of our
scattered romance, shattered
across this lonely room
