No Longer Beating

How strange, the heart dying before it stops beating,
the mournful cadence from heartbreak to distress,
a withering thing inside,
a slow motion tragedy on the way to cardiac arrest.
Lonely hearts, broken hearts,
carrying on as if nothing is wrong,
dying on their feet, but walking until they’re lost.
