Bad Vocabulary. This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

By splenda., Century, FL

I handed you my heart,
wrapped in a blood-stained towel,

A box constructed of broken bones,
and secured with a ribbon of tears.
A box clearly marked "fragile" in letters too large to miss.
Maybe I should have given you a dictionary instead.
