Stunned Heart

 

Stunned Heart

Into the freezer.

Hit me with the numb gun

Safer there.

No thoughts there,

Time is frozen there.

No moment after.

No walk down the hall.

No sitting in the chair.

No looks of sorrow and dismay.

No I’m sorry, so sorry.

I’m sorry, so very, very sorry.

My heart is stunned, frozen.

Don’t take me there.

Don’t say the words.

Don’t take my hands.

Don’t say the words.

Then perhaps it won’t be true.

And I can take these past few months out of deep freeze.

And go on

As if nothing had changed.
