Tale Tale Heart
Sunday, July 21, 2013

It's amazing, the capacity a heart has to absorb hurt
and yet keep beating
I can feel it, inside me.  This aching quivering mass
thump thump, thump thump
banging a painful tattoo against my chest

I imagine it bloody
raw gaping wound pulsating in rhythm to the cadence of my tears
a sad dance of quiet despair, hidden from sight

I am walking wounded
so numb and yet so raw
every nerve ending screaming outloud
what quietly is killing my heart

If i could erase the memories
scribble you off my mind
i'd  eradicate you completely without a second thought

Instead I just go on living
with your crimes inside my head
my heart a living legacy to love won and lost
and I wonder how you live with you
how easily you forgot

Greetings. :)

We just launched Tacoma bookoo - a massive online yard sale for Tacoma and surrounding areas. Thousands of people buying and selling used stuff from each other, in a family-friendly way. :) Here's the website:

We're getting the word out to some local bloggers, and would like to send you a free bookoo t-shirt (no strings attached!). If you would like a free t-shirt, will you send me an email at kellin@bookoo.com with your address and shirt size? I'll get it out to you right away.

Thanks!
Kellin

Was that you I saw at Fort Wainwright a couple months ago? I did not know you moved there. I wanted to say hi but I felt a little awkward if it wasn't you. LOL!
