Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy

Heart Break Syndrome- When a person experiences a severe case of emotional trauma-when they loose someone so dear to them- that their heart, in turn, breaks.

I hope you all realised that Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy can also be known as Heart Break Syndrome. I got this idea, after watching a SCRUBS episode, but I've changed it quite a bit to avoid any copyright claims. The story isn't about who you think it is. Just, bare with me here!

Their bodies,

Drained of almost all life,

of almost all blood.

Later, they would say they,

died by suffocation.

By some gas.

What gas?



As humans we will believe

even the most unlikely,

to dispell that which we are not

ready to believe.

They saw me,

with their red eyes.

Beautiful faces,

sculptured bodies.

Cold hands.

Perfect lips,

perfect smile.

Perfect laughs.


on my neck.



Check if she's worth it.

A kiss, a touch, a hand.

A scream.

Shouts, running.

The cold hand leaves.

I fall.

A hand, an arm.

A warm arm.

A warm hand.








An organ.

So strong, so independant.


In half.

In four.

In eight.

In sixteenths.

I am not whole.

I am broken.

For they are gone,

and they left me here, on this

baren waste land we call Earth.

And I am alone.

All because of their

Red Eyes.

There was a movie called 'Red Eye'.

Scared the living

daylights out of me.

They had red eyes.

They scared the living daylights

out of me too.

With pale skin,

And red eyes.

One ice cube,

One human.

One human.

As red as their blood.
