They cracked me open

They cracked me open
And you spilled out

They cracked me open
And my heart threw up

They cracked me open
And the world shrugged its shoulders

They cracked me open
And proved that you were dead

They cracked me open
And gave me pamphlets on grief

They cracked me open
And told me I could try again

They cracked me open
And said I would recover

They cracked me open
And closed me up

Sealing within me
A kind of emptiness

The human body was not intended to bear.
