3 Pieces of a Broken Heart


by Jerry Ratch


I ate 3 pieces of a broken heart 

I wonder who ate the rest? 

They may have eaten the very best 

I don't know and can't even start 

To wonder how it got in such a mess 

 

3 pieces of a broken heart 

You could tell it just fell apart 

It once had an arrow in it 

You could still see the shadows 

Scattered about, the feathers 

The deadly shaft protruding 

 

The remnants of moaning, the sobbing 

The groaning 

The sounds in the hallways 

Outside the silence that was gnawing away 

At nothingness 

 

I ate 3 pieces of a broken heart 

I wonder who ate the rest? 

They may have eaten the very best 

I don't know and can't even start 

To wonder it got in such a mess 

 

3 pieces of a broken heart 

3 pieces of a broken heart
