Steampunk tarot (Moore) - Three of Swords

This is a scene that will perhaps have us struggling to see the emotion or heartache. The heart in this scene is very mechanical. It is made of cogs and a dial of sorts. The mechanism has been halted by the fact three swords have been run through in different places, rendering the cogs immobile. Representing a stopped heartbeat?

It looks like a bolt and couple of cogs have broken free and are on the floor in front of the metal heart.

On one hand I was disappointed this was quite a plain and symbolic depiction. It didn't really leap out at me and elicit any imagery or interpretation.
Yet on the other hand, this is a good thing. It means I have a blank canvas to work from in a way, and the surrounding cards or context of the reading will dicate the energy and direction I take.
