Internal Bleeding

My Broken Heart

My heart was arrested
and numbness set in
when you cut me off.


I hemorraged at your loss;
the trauma was
too much to bear.


The flow of blood
to my vital organs
was blocked.


My arterties clogged
with your rejection
caused an attack.


I tried to destroy myself
if it meant I wouldn't
have to live without you.
