Her Heart

by Amanda Blanchard
(North Carolina)

her heart was torn 
with gnarled claws
stuck deep within her chest

hot breath kissed
her cheek and lips -
glowed eyes emptied her soul

blood dripped heavily
upon her gown -
her heart ripped out 
easily like taffy
pinched with chubby fingers

she took a heart -
she cheated death -
she swallowed another soul 

defeated creatures 
lost their feast
and had to let her go 

now she flies with her glowed eyes
and soars beyond the clouds
for she's no longer bound with fears -
her heart has made her new
