Heartless

There’s nothing wrong with his anatomy,

not on the surface.

He’s not perfect,

but all the better for that.

It’s under the skin

where the anomaly lies -

there’s no heart to give a beat.

Deception complete,

I’m walking hand-in-hand

with Death.

He's not such a bad sort when you get to know him. He can be a little on the dispassionate side. But hay, he great to have around when people are giving you a hard time. (LOL?)
