Two Hearts

Love Blossoms

You looked beneath the shell
and saw my heart
and knew that it was pure
if a little bruised.


Life made me jaded
but still I trusted you
like I had never been hurt.


I recongized your heart
was made of
the same material as mine.


I am still just
scratching the surface of you,
like a tarnished penny.


I know there's a
bright shiny heart underneath
just waiting to be loved.
