the silent heart attack


the thing about their pain is that you can’t take it away
so you don’t tell them it’ll get better. or worse.
you just hold them in your heart like a baby while saying
“yes, ma’am or yes, sir”
they don’t know they’re in there
so it makes no sense to anyone
when you tell them how heavy your arms feel
they just think you’re having a heart attack
in some ways they’d be right
