"A Broken Heart Still Beats"
A broken heart still beats a rhythm but always out of tune, for the many cracks that invade its structure have forever altered its sound. A heavily corroded & scarred vessel rendered weak & fragile by the fall from careless hands before being left to die on the frozen ground. So close to failure, so near to its end, the harmless casualty of the unkind, the unscrupulous. The innocent victim of monsters & tyrants, though fighting on valiantly, unyieldingly, persistently, desperately trying to maintain its tempo less it fade forever into the unending silence. For even having suffered such mortal damage & lasting impairment by the numbing pain that lingers firmly within its core, this brave entity defies the fear & the rising doubt, reaching out into the world for a kindred vessel with the same purest love & affection once more.
