I saw her heart break yesterday
the watchful face of late
smile that had only known sunshine
and said in words
careful and rounded
the news that he would not be coming home
trembling of the tiny chin
the mouth turned square and agonised
in an eternal instant of distress
I heard the click
audible just to me,
(our hearts being one),
of valves shutting on the final piece of innocence
corpuscles turning sour as news flooded the brain.
Before the hour long scream for daddy.
Not sure if some of the phrases were subconsciously lifted from another poem..sorry, a very very dashed out one...because I HAD to.
