A tale of betrayal and a broken heart that ends with a happy lesson learned

The heart is a powerful muscle pumping blood throughout the entire body at 72 beats per minute.
However, it doesn't take much to mangle your body's workhorse.

The intricate arteries, ventricles and veins flowing that juice of life in and out and then there's a sledgehammer blow.

It's hard to breath, the pain cause your eyes to well with moisture. You fold into a fetal position. Yes that old foe. The enemy that is lurking in the shadows waiting for you to drop your guard.

Just show me a crack in the foundation or wall you put up so well; brick by experience brick. It took years for you to build up your perfect fortress and then a muse is waiting for you to open the draw bridge.

The song of the Siren infiltrates your hard exterior shell and is now resting comfortably in your core. You are now dissected open and the veins are like reins for this creature that is guiding you and breaking down the remainder of the great wall.

You are ice cream in the sun; and ice cube slowly melting in a water glass. You are vulnerable and the heart does second best and loves.
Then the blow, the muse is exposed. The betrayal is revealed. The chunk slowly begins to tear itself painfully from itself and make the journey into the stomach like a great blow to the gut. Then it travels up to the brought and gets stuck.


You slowly get together and begin rebuilding the fortress. The bricks seem much heavier this time and the mortar takes much longer to dry. In time you build a stronger fortress with a force field.

The heart begins to unleash its senses even though the wound runs deep.
The masochistic self revels in the pursuit and need to fill the emptiness caused by the muse.

The heart keeps pumping at 72 beats per minute with a newly developed callus at the point of impact.
