Nothing in Nothing out

Fat 
it slows you down 
but squeezes out
and softens
and coddles the heart
one day hugging too hard 
Muscle
protects your bones
but plasters the soul
enclosing in darkness
the white slits and growls 
A weak heart
A vulnerable heart
A sensitive heart
A fearful heart 
cemented as it shouts
The muscle 
changes nothing
Nothing in
but nothing out
