Dark Heart #writephoto – Crow

**This is in response to Sue Vincent’s #writephoto prompt.  You can find out all about the fun on her page HERE.  

Dark Heart —

A heart dark as night

You cut to the quick

With a tongue

Sharp like a knife

I will not

Speak your name

Bitter in my mouth

Like a foul pill

Your soul

dirties my memory
