This heart is yours…


…inspired by this Kyknoord illustration, offered as a visual prompt at “readwritepoem”.



This Heart is Yours

this heart is yours

this damaged heart

this brittle
aching heart

in your cold cruel hands

then cast aside

I’ve no use for this ruined heart

I plucked it from my chest

I seek a warm and vital heart

now begins my quest
