Eats The Heart

.
.
What sort of being,
Eats the Heart,
And destroys all else?
.
Does this being,
Desire only the Heart,
To fill an empty maw?
.
When Heart has been eaten,
Does beauty have meaning?
Is love only refuse?
.
What sort of being,
Converts all to garbage,
Save the Heart consumed?
.
What is left of Spirit
When the Center
Has been gnawed?
.
Are loving
Incantations
Voided without Heart?
.
The Heart given freely
Is swallowed, just as surely
As a Heart stolen by charm.
.
I found, hidden,
Veiled in my sorrow,
My lovers secret name.
.
The true name,
I have married, is
Eats the Heart.
