All Heart

The way to a man's heart
is not a knife thrust upward
between the fifth and sixth rib
and given a good jiggle about
it's not a sniper's dead shot
headshot armour piercing
it's not a shotgun blast with
both barrels at point-blank
It is not a carefully inserted
power drill on hammer setting
it's not a fire axe thrust powerfully
with force into the chest cavity
it's not a grenade hung round
the neck for self-detonation
it is not a kitchen carving serrated
knife thrust from behind skilled
to stab under the shoulder blade
it's not even the surgeons careless
slip of the scalpel during surgery

These very events will stop the heart
but let's face it - where is the fun in that?
the most skilled way to a man's heart
first, make him fall in love with you
take, take, and take some more with
or without permission, cheat, cheat
and cheat some more with a smile on your face
cheat with other men, women and horses
once he seems out of cash or worthless
make him feel desperate by questioning
the validity of his love, keep him on edge
use sex as a weapon to keep him hooked
if he starts to suspect, dump him and cut
of all contact, turn others against him
create lies assassinating his character

this is truly the way to a man's heart
if you want to destroy him just because
you can.

Killing him is too easy
break his heart and torture
him for years to come

such satisfaction can be had
for deliberate and hateful planners
all it takes to start it off
is to offer love
then you are
good
to
go
