Do Different Hearts Ache Differently?

Do different hearts ache differently?
My heart aches! Oh boy it aches!
Like a poke of a hundred pins
Like a skin pierced by a lion’s claw
Like a stab from a sharp dagger
It aches! Yes it aches in many ways!
Like landing on your head from a fall
Like dislocating your knee
Like being crushed by a heavy stone
Yes it aches like that
Does your heart ache like mine?
Does it even ache?
Does it ache all the time?
How does your heart ache?

  1. Ache?
    Nah, I carved it out long ago. In its place I settled a hunk of coal. I suppose someday I’d hoped she might come along and kindle a spark. That would be nice, I thought, an orange glowing ember in the center of my chest. A chest that used to ache, but now only chills silent and dark.
