I Didn't Feel A Thing

He explained that it felt like

Someone had reached in to his chest

Pulled his heart out

And stomped on it.


Like the Earth had stopped moving

All air had been removed

So that he laid there

Barely able to catch his breath.


When he woke the next morning

It was as if the sun didn’t rise

Nothing moved from the way it was

The night before.


The doom came over him

He suddenly wanted to die;

Without his heart

Without her

He didn’t want to live.


But me

It was different.

I didn’t feel a thing.
