I Buried My Heart Deep Underground

a photoI buried my heart deep underground,

Under the dirt,

In a hole in the woods,

Covered in moss, wet in dew,

I buried my heart in a box,

Covered it in sand, granules and rocks,

A brick to hold it down,

I buried my heart under the seafloor,

In a treasure trove,

Beneath coral and shells,

I’ll walk around heartless, mindless, soulless,

I can’t remember where I buried the essence of myself?

I’ll keep walking till I find it,

I buried my heart so deep,

I’ve forgotten how to unearth it.
