Hollow places

Do you hear it?
The flutter resembling a beat?
The echo?
A barely there sound?
Hardly humming to the sound of life?
Do you see them?
Jagged pieces hanging off the edges of my chest?
As my body lies there unmoving and numb?
I don’t.
I forgot what that sound feels like
All I hear is shattering over and over
Thoughts running together and making no sense
The echo of my heartbeat fades
The hum of life dying by the second
Do you remember hearing my heart beat?
I faintly recollect
Because last I did, I laid my eyes on you.
