I choke on the morgue
That coils my heart.
Tightened by the bloody strings
Of veins, turned red, in the dark.
So I am beat.

Thank you for the like!
The poem is about how the pain from love and relationships can stay with us… the heart can act like a morgue for dead hopes and betrayal even to the point that it can distort future relationships.
In that case, we are literally ‘beaten’ by our hearts. Coincidently a word play for how our hearts are said to beat.
Perhaps not the cheeriest poem one may come across today!
