Forget Me Forget Me Not
How can my heart withstand such a beating?
Like a gale thrashing inside my chest
In all directions; madly aghast
Lungs filled with choking breath
Damson and decayed -bones abreast
Throat gripping with despair
In dirt and girt
Tongue bleeding into the anthurium leaves
Bright blue lips
Forget me not – in curving spikes
Coil around my chest
Eyes closed in clenching thought
How can heart endure such a loss?
