Some learn to live with cavities of the heart.
Others need to fill the void.
They squeeze, they cram,
they fit whatever they can into the spaces
until it is too full
and starts to burst at the seams.
Then they look for a bandaid
to hold the pieces together.
And that works. Temporarily.
The problem with bandaids though?
They have to come off.
And that’s going to sting.
