inconsistencies

the shallow beat
the hard rhythm
the only way to cure a broken heart

if i let you take a peek
inside my cavity
will you be able to discern
the good parts from the bad
or rip them all out with your hands

it’s not what i want that bothers me
because there’s not much i deserve
if i could heal immediately
i’d take back the harsh words
that put me here in the first place

the remedy of my tragedy
is the same story as the last
cut up and bruised, hanging onto the past
