I got the autopsy report back
some time after your death;
enlarged heart damaged by
so many years of anger.
Esophagus burns from
holding in overdue apologies.
Liver weakened by overwhelming
resentment of the past.
Scar tissue and bruising on
nearly every vital organ.
Under ‘Cause of Death’
the coroner wrote mutiny
the organs were tired of
living an unfulfilled life
and there wasn’t a single damn cell
that hadn’t helped in killing you.
