A Latched Heart

A LATCHED HEART

where blood, sweat and tears blend,
chest is empty;
seeping through cracks
anger runs like a current;
chilled as though caught in a draft.

racket of empty words
same song, new refrain;
spared not the pain,
seared, as a lightning strike;
no such thing as no strings attached.

temper flares —
only a trace of life remains
