I wonder what forensics
Would tell us if they found.
My heart in shattered pieces-
Lying cast off on the ground.
“Hmm? This heart was broken
More than once it seems…
Behold the signs of sorrow-
Which comes from shattered dreams.
And…there! I guess you see it…
Inflicted by a brutal blow…
And there, perhaps much older-
Than the wound which produced death-
Are scarring, and abrasions”…
That must be when you left.
Yes, no doubt forensic medicine-
With techniques which they know…
Would determine that my injuries
Should have killed me long ago.
