the killing heart

and I realise all my life has been
a search for someone to love
be it God or art or even just myself
the broken youth becomes
the weird misshapen man
the boy with a red balloon
still entombed like Tutankhamun
back when I was 17 I would have done
most things for love
and that’s what I find
most horrifying
