The Grinch

I feel bad for the grinch whose heart proceeds to 

Swell with mass, enlarged

With feelings of compassion

How painful it must have been

For the heart to remember 

How to love once again 
The pressure from expansion

Tests the limit of this muscle cavity 

Caged in, senselessly beating 

Flesh hot in the searing pain

Of unintentional empathy
 Now I must feel for two, you

And the one who might hurt you

It’s the beginning again 

Which only means this will too

Tragically end.
