With a glint in your eye
And a sly smile
You reached into your chest
And pulled out your heart
Fluttering- as it continued pounding in your hand
You had given it to me
Scared I murmured some excuse and tried to walk away
I can’t bear to see you walking without a heart
And seeing that heart in my hand
Veins outstretched
And blood pumping in and out
I don’t know what to do
It doesn't belong to me
I never wanted it
tiptoeing with this weight
I can not protect it
fearing that I might hurt it
I wish that you learned that your heart is a possession yours to keep
and a burden that only you can feel
because the one lesson I never learned-
was how to return it.

The Anatomy of Emotionby fly-0008

Maybe the heart should remain behind the ribcage
Symbolical meets anatomical
very much inspired by howl ^_^
I am doing dissection in lab next week- This piece is the product of my excitement :P

Can't relate because I don't know the feeling, but it's very well written. ^^

That's a pretty cool piece. It's like you put figuratively into making into real

"You had given it to me" ... might be better as "And then you gave it to me."

This is a very good presentation of an important concept.
