Crushed

Yesterday I lay my hands upon my heart 
And, compelled by each wave screaming down my cheek
I squeezed with cold intent
Watery eyes pumped full with blood
I watched as its face turned blue
This heart deserves better
For I know all that it has endured 
Suffering the torment of a tall world
Whose downward scowl has dulled the air
With an acrid mist of hopeless ignorance

A second glance at this reflection
Begging for further contemplation
A chance to begin again and rebuild
But its a time withered thought by now
And in my right ear Reason has become distilled
Disconcertingly quiet yet eerily clear
Empathy crushed this heart will be at peace today
