The Artificial Heart - Poem by Kenneth Maswabi

Sewn together
Chunks of emotions deleted
Gripped by numbness
The hollow heart is alive
Portraying signs of recovery
The wounds hidden by a thick blanket of numbness
The smog that hides the hideous battle within

A dark tunnel
Clutching on Hope
The pacemaker
The only light at the other end
Flickering in the wind
Living on borrowed time
Life seems meaningless
Bound together in depression
A whole wall of emotions destroyed

The artificial heart strapped into our chest
Held together by a thin line of hope
Our only source of life
Full of uncertainties
