A Ubiquitous Question (With Multiple Answers)

What happens when a heart breaks inside? Perhaps, because its internal it's easier to hide? But maybe it grows sores and oozes puss that seeps through pores and leaves residue and stains like fingerprints on windowpanes. Or it might fracture and break and cracks form from the anger and hate of Love unrequited and desire unreturned and passion offered but spurned. But then again... it might decompose. The rotting flesh attracting crows who scavenge and pick at the bloodied mass through open chest until at last the heart does rest-- and stop.
