Chest Cavity

The utter sweetness of your pounding heart

Became too overwhelming because you left it untouched

So overwhelming, in fact, that it grew into bacteria

And slowly ate everything away, gnawing it apart

Now they’ve finished their work, and all that’s left

Is a gaping cavity in your dull murmuring chest

A dark, hollow hole that’s filled with empty

Of where all your love and compassion once used to be.
