The human heart
...leaps and jumps
...races and sings
...sighs and groans
 
The treacherous heart can
...melt or harden to ice
...betray or mislead
...desire and burn hot
 
It can fall and break in two
So many things
The human heart
Is supposed to do
 
My brain circles
Puzzled
Pokes it
To see if it will move
 
All out of verbs
It just sits there
Only beating
Let my heart be
 
It just lays there dormant
Only beating
Keeping me alive
I am alive
