Understand - Poem by Reed Dietiker

I hold my heart in my hand
My chest of steel
With no heartbeat to feel

I walk on hopes
I hang by the ropes
I walk an endless trail
I read emotions without fail

Im tired of holding my heart...
So I'll rip it apart
Throw some in the trash
Burn some and spread the ash

'Whats with your hand'? - Girl
'I got rid of myself through out the land'- Me
'So wherever you go, I'll be there'- Me
'You cant miss me'- Me
'Even if my heart isnt with me'- Me
