Heartbreak in Rhyme

The Fear of Hearts Splintering Put into Rhyme

She carried her heart

On her head not her sleeve

For it was harder to lose

When her love had to leave


They could not just snip

Her heart from her jacket

They had to knock off

Or fully attack it


Very few have the time

Or the effort to spare

To shoot her heart off

And into the air


So she holds her heart

Close to her head

Since if someone attacked it

She'd rather be dead
