My heart builds coffins
with careful meticulosity
Hammering each nail
With such heartfelt intensity
You might believe it enjoys its work.
My heart craves graves
Etching words in stone
For those who can't be saved,
Another letter placed
For ever word you say
Till a name is finally written
To its utter dismay.
My heart buries souls 
Waiting patiently for those it greets
To disappear one day
And its work will be complete.
My heart dries tears
by burying its water
So deep inside
Even those it loves won't matter
When it finally buries them
In a coffin by its own design
And I don't mind
Its a task I assigned
Of my fragile heart
To harden it to the goodbyes
To ready it for them
To be ready for when they die
So I'd have no tears left to cry.
My hearts builds your coffins
With a careful meticulosity
Hammering each nail
With such heartfelt intensity
You'd almost believe it enjoys its work.
I romanticized what I actually do. Not let anyone close cause I'd rather not feel anything when they finally go away. gotta stop doing that.
Hope everyone enjoys XD

This is amazing. I can't even write how I feel. There are no words to describe this. Really emotional!

This poem is very vivid and has very good rhythm. Have you considered making a song out of it? If not, could I?

This is incredible. I know this is not much to say, but it's out of this world to describe this.
