The Shattered Heart

The Shattered Heart

layer upon layer
i am stripped
away

you know when
it happened
i heard you say,

“this is gonna hurt.”

what hurt more
was your walking
away

hurt revived
and relived
day after
day

scabbed over scabs
clawed at
no longer
hold
chip away

take away
this heart of stone
lay it in
the path of the foam
and though it is not
call it home
