Today I had lunch

With my empty soul

On display.

I was surprised

That people around me

Had the strength to eat.


As I scribbled some scribbles

And waved tiny~like

To a child across the way~

My attention was caught

By the couple to my right

Kissing sweetly.

There, in public.

Smiling all the while.


I turned quickly

Shoving my heart back down my throat

When my eyes locked in on a stranger

Staring back at me.


Finger in the hole

Of his own bloody heart.
