the heavy part of the heart

the heavy part of the heart
by Viola Allo

the heavy part of the heart
is moving toward nothing
but we count all movement
and the heavy heart is moving
is moving away from everything
the heavy part of the heart
is hanging back and hardening
is made of solid rock hence heavy
it has it’s own ecology and grows
it thickens and lengthens
the dense rock widens and deepens
the heavy part of the heart
is choking the whole heart
is blocking the passage of love
the heavy part of the heart
is a misdiagnosed cancer
you think you simply swallowed a small stone
and will pass it out in time
but the reality is that
your blood is not flowing
you are in fact dying
the heavy part of the heart
kills and the dying feels good
the heavy part of the heart kills
that is why it must somehow be broken
must somehow be shattered and sunken
so that the heart can feel pain and sorrow
and to feel is to be human and alive
the thing to fear is this:
a person who does not feel deeply, who does not know how
tyrants and terrorists understand what i’m talking about
and the heavy part of the heart
is the culprit
