Your heart, she said, your heart will change its beat. You will feel it move, she said. You will feel it drop back into place. Don't be alarmed, she said, when it drips into a new rthymn, when the liquid forms a new cast. I am waiting for it.

I am waiting for my heart to skip a beat. Its not where I left it alone. Your heart fell out, she said. You forgot to put it back. You left it under soles for shattered glass. It looked for you she said, but it did not recognise your rhythmn.

Your rhythm without a heart she said,
Is silent.

You have died a thousand deaths she said, do not be afraid to feel into the dark. Your heart can smell you she said, it can smell your tears and burning corners of your breath.
Its fragile she said.

But take it.
