Their heart was full.

They wanted to heal their heart
and mend the wounds.
They began by cutting a line
and prying open another chest
with a latex glove
to keep it sterile.
They tore it off their hand
which was recently washed and pure
allowing a finger free
placing a finger tip
amongst the heart
feelings its warmth.
They allowed their finger to move up and down
with the beats
feeling a sense of remembrance
of a time in which
their own heart was whole.
Soon enough they will feel that
grabbing the right instrument
they stabbed it several times.
Screaming how does that feel
to be open and exposed
left with holes?

They smiled
knowing when it was over
their heart would be full once again
as they ripped off a piece
and a few more.
The pieces they ripped off
they began inserting
in a tiny hole within their own chest
sticking their finger deep within it
holding each piece
waiting for the nibble and another.
Their heart was full once again
at the expense of another.

Thanks for reading.
