Scar Tissue

When a heart mends,
does scar tissue form?
Or does muscle grow back,
stronger than before?

I don’t think a heart
breaks right down the center,
but rather, in pieces,
small, yes, but tender.

When two hearts race,
one has to win.
And the one that doesn’t
breaks in the end.

So when a heart mends,
does scar tissue form?
Or does muscle grow back,
stronger than before?

I am liking this because even though i am dellusional i feel there is some existent other meaning in this other than what is greeting my eye. I am also loving the first stanza. It would be conducive for you to do your dance at the time which is now.
