a patronizing object
of conscious
of being

ignore it
though it bothers you to the core
a warm heart
would suit better

for someone of your caliber

can’t take
emotion
pain
anything,
really

the bitter heart
may keep
you alive

but it doesn’t make you want to live

the barriers constructed
surround the red liquid
that keeps a bitter heart
from a warm heart
that carries

sentiment
