a proposed ranking system for injuries of the heart

How much it hurt can be gauged by
how I describe you: if you
had a lovely smile then
’twas but a scratch. If you
made great conversation then
the bruise flared but faded, but if
my mother would have liked you, then
it’s going to take a while
for the bones to set.
