A missing title...

by S.T.A.R.   Mar 4, 2019

They called me a psychopath,
but you looked into my eyes
not fearing what I held inside
or even what my red tears
looked like...

Where.... have you been?
you asked

and I couldn’t answer,
for I have feared that you
would also leave me

But you
opened my
chest, took my
heart out, and painted it

You carefully
placed it tilted right,
and sutured me with
yellow stitches.

    An interesting read where you open yourself to the other
    and place your precious heart in love's hand. I liked the format
    of this write and the way it flowed...well penned.

    Adored the ending to this, Star. I feel there’s an innocence here, and a desperation for understanding and acceptance.
