Thumb on My Heart

Paul C. Binotto

© 2020

Sometimes it can feel
Like your heart is the scale drum
That holds the weight of the world.

And just when you think you’ve
Gained an ounce of balance from
An ounce of burden removed.

Satan comes along at his pleasure.
And puts his heavy-hand thumb
On it, just for good measure.
