Ghost Heart

from Hex by Cave Mouth



Look at it my ghost heart
my ghost heart
Look at it my ghost heart
my ghost heart

I put a knife to my chest
I make a thin incision in the skin
and pull it back slowly and with care

I use my fingers to hollow through the flesh
and scoop out my sick organ

Move it around on your palm
notice how quiet it is
not even a hum
and pale pale as the candles
I'm burning from sun up
to sun down

Now give it back
I must care for it
until it is soft again
until it sings

Cave Mouth is the brain child of Meghan Wood (Crown of Asteria) and writer Katie Metcalfe.
