heart lips

if my heart had lips
just think of the things
my heart would say

but it does
my heart
has many lips

each valve
a pair of lips
each ventricle
a mouth

i hope
they don’t
shut up

but others
cannot hear
the chatter
the constant

they dare not
listen to
my heart

and i’m
not sure
i’d want them
so close

so sometimes
i remain
tight lipped
not a word
leaks forth

but my
pitter patter
and scream
the matter
that far-off ears
can’t hear
