    I wonder why they named it a heartbreak?
    When ache was rising inside their mouths
    did they feel a thud or
    a rumbling noise inside their chests?
    Did they hear the dying gasps
    of only survivor on a sinking ship?
    Or did they see the ballarina die
    that danced at the back of their throats.
    I can't ever tell, for I heard a fading and a distant tapping of the Morse code,
    that went, dot dash dot dot... dot..........dash....................................dot. and later a silent nothing
    Is this what they call a heartbreak?
