Do you ever wonder if your chest was cracked open and your heart lifted out if it would be riddled with holes, some that made it all the way through and some that only were noticeable when your heart was held to the light.  Paper thin tissue holding on, perhaps.  I like to think that the paper thin tissues are cracks that have started to heal, but I have a suspicion that they are just marks of steady wear and soon even that sheer bit will be gone.  Maybe this is how people die of heartbreak, their heart is so thin and fragile like coral that one more hole just shatters the complete organ.  Does the the heart ever actually heal or does it simply scab over and harden?  I hope it heals, despite this pain I really don't want a hard heart.  I already have a hard head ;)
