My Telltale Heart

my heart has had some fights lately
leaving it bruised and battered
most of the time it is a quiet scream
it needed to be ripped open again
surgically repaired with kindness
so the jagged edges turned to small scars
so it started, it stings but it itches
so it is healing, i am impatient
but i’m reassured it will heal
i will heal
my heart will be unbruised
it is already so full
that i no longer doubt that
