Heart beat

Heart beat (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Tiny ballet feet

twisted in pointe shoes of pink

scatter like scared mice.

*****

Birds of flight, soaring

escaping sadness, run free

My soul cracks in pieces.

*****

See, touch, my scarred heart

Compress air, laid out to die

A faint beat slows down.
