The poem is below.


A boy with her heart

A broken muscle, pumps and slackens.
It's feeling dulled in her chest.
Lifts a hand up to feel it move,
But there's no sound beneath her breast.

The veiny parts have all been cut, 
A very clever trick.
He whispers, “if I can't be with her, 
I won't let her live.”

That is indeed scary... Painfully sad, very very clever way to describe this happening between people.

That is very dark Tricia and kind of scary, though you have expressed this well.
