My heart blackened – from burnt.

Shriveled and hardened

To a piece of unenergetic coal

Useless and pointless…

Hmmmm…

How did my organ morph? Was there ever a chance?

What is … -- love.

A foreign word tumbles off my tongue.

I can feel – but enough is never enough

Is never… enough.

Harsh. Hard. Hardened – Like a prison wall – with only room to stretch.

It’s funny, I used to, be able to, wanted to… What’s that foreign word again?

Loathe…?

Loned…?

Loved…!

Can you show me?
