The Zombie Heart

By Mike V. Derderian

White washed eyes,

Under which lies a deathly grin,

[Sigh!]

I knew her!

Gnawed bones protruding here and there;

Bloodied hands and rotten skin.

“Tear it apart … tear it apart … ” an inner voice wails.

Do not reach out … it comes.

Broken teeth that tear through flesh;

Like a hot spoon cutting through a bar of butter.

The envy of modern day Judases, it has an embrace like no other.

“Tear it apart … tear it apart … ” an inner voice wails.

I swing my rusted axe; slowly spurts the smelly coagulated blood.

The loathsome figure that once was lady-like and lithe is now an infested heap,

Strewn about on the humid ground with other body parts.

Dead eyes peer into mine,

I dig deep to find a soul within the murky crystalline orbs.

Nothing!

“Tear it apart … tear it apart … ” an inner voice wails.

A merciless hand reaches down a flesh and bone cage;

“Tear it apart … tear it apart … “

A rib cage ensnaring what once was filled with love.

“Tear it apart … tear it apart … “

Within my weary hands I hold a lifeless lump.

A rotten zombie heart! A rotten zombie heart!

It is not like freeing a bird, with muddied wings, caught in the strings of a broken and dead heart,

A bullet in the brain is a must.

[Click, clack!]

Bang!

[A shot is heard and one zombie heart will no more hurt].

      Did you meet one that didn’t have a heart Haitham ;-}) To flesh a rusted axe is what a hot spoon is to butter. Don’t ask me how I came up with that conclusion ;-})
