beaten

at first they’re kind of squishy to hold, hearts,

but you get used to it

except you dropped mine

and yours was sick

we saved them both

but it took a lot of time and work

after they recovered and felt secure

or at least mine did; but you said so too

you dropped mine again, this time harder

and more intentionally

then I realized you’d snatched yours back

clever slight of hand, leaving me with none

but it’s okay – you can keep the heart I gave you

or leave it in that floor

because it no longer beats

and I’m slowly growing a new one

This one is just for me.
