could it be

that accompanying the

biggest heart

is the largest pool of

seething

rage

(and that they cannot be

separated---that because one

exists, the other has been

formed)---

a virtual filing cabinet

filled with the charred memories

of failures & brooding angst

that come from years of

neglect & a societal

ignorance

of a single personality

that so quickly

will be swept under the

rug?

 

could it be that when the

biggest heart is not

nurtured

(as so many other who have

hearts

so much smaller),

that the anger bubbling over,

might swallow it

whole?

 

could it be that said heart now swallowed

might blacken & infest inside the

angry host,

forcing it to turn cancerous &

from that pure

unadulterated anger,

might come a thrashing out towards those

who neglected, who ignored, who aimed to sweep

said individual

under the rug?

 

could it be that when all things come to pass &

the now blackened, cancerous & angst ridden

individual,

sees fit to enact a firestorm upon the world around

her/him,

that we will be surprised,

that we will act as if we had no idea,

just as we have done before in the past?

 

could it be that the responsibility for the

destruction of the biggest heart,

lies in the hands of us all &

that no one is innocent

when it comes to the carnage that

follows?
