X-ray

May 15, 2010

I hear the crack
See the blood
What have you
Done to me?
***
They take me in
Push some buttons
Get my x-ray
Of my broken heart
***
They say
My condition
Is severe
I may not survive
***
I get visitors
Mostly family and friends
But one day
You come to visit
***
You apologize
You plead for forgiveness
You say you want
To make it all better
***
You say you love me
I laugh
You say its true
I laugh harder
***
That night
I die
You come to my funeral
And cry
***
You apologize once more
To my corpse
You say "I love you"
And walk away crying
***
Only now
Do I realize
Your words
Are true

The End.
