“this is my heart”

this is my heart
I am lying when I tell you this
it is no more mine
than the fear
that springs from deep within it

though i could not exist without it
and it could not exist without me
it is no more mine
than a half-remembered whisper
overheard by a small child
as he falls asleep in his mother’s arms
“he will cry when he finds you gone”

it beats on
the logic is flawless
it is not the one who is broken
I can not will it to stop

this is my heart
I am lying when I tell you this
it is no more mine
than the love that flows from i
