Meaty Heart

your heart had been aching for so long
its strings were intertwining, tangling,
it was beating harder than it ever did

you told me those people
played you like an old violin
with old strings ready to snap

they made you feel so good
vibrated your core
they made you feel alive again

until they played too fast
the strings broke,
then the bow slipped
and struck you deeply

they were just fulfilling
their own carnal desires
with your meat
-y heart
