This is how I've been feeling over the last few weeks. x

Carve out my besotted heart

Cut it up

Set out the separately sliced Ventricles a piece apart

Then let the blood seep into the wooden floor as though to sup

Peel my Vena Cava and Pulmonary from my Aorta.. Set them out at angles

Rip away my Pericardium and let it fall thinly through the air to be stickily tangled

Atrioventricular valves droop as their fragile forms realise they are unnecessary now

Semilunar valves flap down the wrong way as the muscles lose all know how

Chordae Tendinaea lose elasticity as the Ventricles are cut apart from the atria with a snap

The Septum sliced down its middle as the two are separated carefully on your lap

I don't suppose you were at all careful with my Auricles, were you?

As much as you would have been with my Apex as you tore the Pericardium from it, so from one they became two.

It was wrong of me indeed..

Is it so evil for me to live? To try? To need?

Because what it seems to me

Is that

No matter what I do, how I act,

It's interpreted inappropriately

Are my good intentions so difficult to see?

I'm bending over backwards to make things work

I'm doing all I can not to go berserk

All this fucking sneaking around

It's making me sick and so I surround

Myself with all of the things that cause you to conceive

The thoughts in your head that untrue about me

All I need is to be comforted and loved, not left on a shelf

I need to be made to feel that I'm allowed to be myself

Until you notice that this is how I feel

My unhappiness and discomfort only shall I reveal

If it weren't for you and your complaining

I'd be grand and contentedness'd be sailing

Until then your knowledge is lost

Until then I'll observe your confusion at no cost
