Heart

Heart

 

You took my heart out of my

chest

and ran merrily through

the blackberry bushes

 

When you brought it back

to me

with glee

and put it lovingly in

my empty chest

and it was scratched

and lined and achy

 

You told me not to feel the pain

 

You simply said

 

I love you
