my vampire heart


this knotted heart

needs to be healed


i work to unravel it

bit by bit


the twists and turns

smears of blood


untangling the pain

is a delicate endeavour


you could burst a vein

pinch off an artery


i sit and hold it

gingerly in my hands


too scared to touch it

too scared to try


its beats soft and slow

a low thudding pulse


this ruined mass of flesh and fluids

is not my making


but it can only be mended

by my own hands
