Mend

how do you mend a broken heart?
glue won’t hold together the fibers,
the frayed threads of love and compassion.
what kind of sewing needle wouldn’t
prod and pinch the host’s emotions?

how do you mold a shattered heart?
splintered and displayed on the floor
the tear drops sprinkling the glass
remnants, of a past so vivid
the scenes glisten in the lighted fragments.

how do you erase a heart’s memory?
how do you freeze emotions
never to be felt again?
