Chocolate Heart
Quinn. Age 13. Furlong, PA
                      Locked inside—
A chocolate heart

Untouched by the souls
Surrounding it

Unbroken by the love
It has never felt

Beating incessantly like a drum
In a marching band
On Thanksgiving Day

Ready to melt away
Ready to be eaten by the myriad
Thoughts and voices it hears

Ready at last
To be touched and broken
Time for change
Time for the locked-up heart
To be set free
