My muscle of amore isn't really functioning properly.

(Who Killed Challenge)



Who's killing my heart?

Strangled constrictions, muted explosions;
Stumbling rhythm and halting contractions
I'm gasping for air as my eyes grow glazed
Enter helpless tears as thoughts become dazed

In dread I push the button on my chest,
Divine despair; is this another test?
So it would seem, and as I feel it start;
Again I wonder, who's killing my heart?

Yes, this is a text worthy of reading, contemplating and analyzing! However, I choose to make a statement - as long as you can feel that someone or something is killing your heart, you are still very much alive! Might be time to makea 180 degree turn -around, tho'!?
