This Heart Shall Tell No Tale

A second heart fills my chest 

Wrapped within the first one

It grew

On a long walk down a hallway
During a desperate night
Across one hundred faultless notes
Inside embraces superpowered by sight from eyes unseen

It’d barely begun to beat
on an ominous, light-filled afternoon

When the blood flow was broken
Chambers clenched from drips off strangled veins

How long can you carry a dying heart inside living flesh
Each beat quaking beneath bone and skin

Hidden but not silent
The clang of desire
Of love unfulfilled

How long can you live 
while decaying
