    dotsThe Stitches of a Broken Heartdots

    She sat in a room and gazed at her heart,
    Broken in pieces from the end to the start,
    Didn’t realize the scratches until it was too late,
    I guess this was just the spin on fate,
    Now she walks to the doctors and asks them what’s wrong,
    They say your heart’s been broken too long,
    It seems as though someone scratched your heart bit by bit,
    She asks how could this be I never let him touch it,
    The doctor looks at her and then back at her heart,
    Then goes through his drawers and pulls out a part,
    With a smile he hands it to the girl and says this,
    Take it and put it in the part that’s a miss,
    She placed her heart on the table and looked at the scars,
    Stitches, Band-Aids, and a tattoo that says “ours”,
    Tears started draining from her eyes,
    She went through in her head all of his lies,
    Looked straight at the doctor then back at the heart,
    She looked at it a while then put in the part,
    Then tears slowed and the scars went away,
    Her heart started beating and still does to this day,
    And the doctor said with joy now go and live your life,
    But before she put it back she took out a knife,
    Scratched out the tattoo and put in something new,
    It read now “mine” and then put it back in her chest brand new.

      Wow what a wonderul heartwarming story! It paints a picture of someone who has been broken and hurt yet they went and found something worth living for again and stitched back the torn heart and moved on with their lives.

    This was beautifully written :)

      This is quite moving. I too (like DaleP) enjoy the lengths to which the metaphor is taken. Are you really only 13? This is very impressive for someone so young!

    My favorite lines:
    She placed her heart on the table and looked at the scars,
    Stitches, Band-Aids, and a tattoo that says “ours”

    I love that the protagonist heals herself in the end, too! Moving past pain. . . a tricky operation indeed!

    One small crit from me is that I would take out the last line. I don't think it's needed. Or maybe just shorten it a bit.

    This is great though, really. It's something special.

    I like the frankensteinian surrealism of your poem.
    The idea of such radical surgery to reanimate
    your psyche is kewl. The end is sweet too
    just remove the old tattoo (like someone’s name
    you made the mistake of inking in, only
    this one is literally on your heart.)
    Put back the heart and life is all better.
    This is creative. Creative is one
    of my favorite things.

      Wow! a GREAT POEM I MUST SAY! I was on the edge of my seat wanting more!

    I could feel alot of emotions in this poem.
    Sad to say we all face broken hearts sometimes.
    keep writing!
