Heartless


Feeling me for where my heart use to be that space is like my soul which is now empty.

          I could have sworn there was something there.  I know for a fact there was something there, but I can't find it anywhere.

          I didn't wear it on my sleeve, but still I feel grief, heart stolen in the night by an unseen thief.

          Will it be treated delicately, neglectfully, respectfully, lovingly?  Will it ever be a part of me, joined again conjunctively, collectively?  Or will I remain heartless, another statistic like all the rest.  Fully depressed, partially blessed, but another zombie, none-the-less.

          What is to become of me?  My heart is gone and I feel empty.  Even wind whistles through where my heart should be, but with no heart in me, is there no live in me?  Is to love again a possibility or a figment of reality?
