Let's Remove Your Rotten Heart

Written by: Mary Nagy

I'd like to 
tie a tourniquet 
around your 
wounded heart
and watch 
until the blood 
stops dripping
then I would cut away 
the mangled mass
of decaying vessels 
that hang
below the pulsing 
mound of life.

Perhaps then
you could begin, 
begin to feel, 
begin to love, 
begin to live.
