Heart of Stone

     My cold heart of stone
bleeding tears of ice
cracked by forever-winter
held in shaking hands of bone
twisting, turning
     ready to drop and shatter
     in a flutter of byes.

     My cold heart of stone
laced with bitter shards
cut by blood red fragments
torn by twists of fate
trembling, shivering
     ready to drop and shatter
     in a flutter of byes.

     My cold heart of stone
seeping memories and thoughts
loosing all cohesion
scattering ifs and whens
into the winds of tomorrow
floating, moaning
     ready to drop and shatter
     in a flutter of byes.

     My cold heart of stone
the pieces flying apart
across the sea of no return
into the lunar dark of space
until the end of human time
     gone…
     in a flutter of byes.
