Thirty Days Of Poetry Challenge(Day Eleven(2012))

dear open heart surgeon,

 

god she makes you look like an amateur
your greatest fears I pray you never share
she’ll laugh you under a table
record it for eternity
damn, she makes you look like an amateur
life can choose for us the bad
and it can choose for us the greatest
let your next operation be less patient
more passionate
let the drastic side of life trump the overprotected
let your love of fear be vanquished for who you say you love
(seriously, she makes you look like an amateur)

 

Signed,
the last heart you cut out with that cold knife and hands of yours…
