Poem: Lazarus Heart

The heart is a miracle
It is the only body part
That can be crushed
Ripped completely apart
And still be more than

It is a gestalt organ
The total of its beating
Greater than the sum
Of individual pieces

Like Lazarus dying
From pain of loss
Or outright rejection
The heart rises again
In splendor from ashes
Taking flight on chances
To find love yet again
