Brown Eyes

Brown Eyes
JCD Kerwin

With three heartbeats
I can do more damage
than with one.
It’s more fun
to break these parts
over again
and rid them of pain,
of loss,
desolation
and regret three times
more than
before.
Three heartbeats
could be amazing but
for me
they only reflect
three times the pain
of living three times as long
as maybe I should have.
