Photo manipulation to illustrate my poems There’s a hole in my heart and There’s a hole in my heart Part II

There’s a Hole in My Heart
======

There’s a hole in my heart
the sunlight shines through
and sometimes the moon does too.

    I’ve tried to
        sew it shut with a black inky pen
        and knit it together with brush and paper.

Nothing seems to work because

There’s a hole in my heart
starlight flickers in its depths
and butterflies dance in and out.

    I’ve tried to
        stuff it with words written in blood
        glue the edges together with a song and a prayer.

Nothing seems to work because

There’s a hole in my heart
the dead lights glow deep inside it
and crows shout their misery from one side to the other.

    I’ve tried to
        fill it with witchcraft and curses
        stuff it with tears and the petals of a rose.

Nothing seems to work because

There’s a hole in my heart
seems that’s part of me
and who I am.

    So I embellish it
        with flowers and stars
        with flourishes and ribbons
        with pretty words and wings
        with a spider’s web of songs
        with the colours of my mind

There’s a hole in my heart
don’t worry,
that’s just as it’s supposed to be.
