Here Is My Heart

OK. Well,                     Um, Look!

So, here it is!!                 My  own heart!!

No, it is not new, Oh,        No.  But, it IS mine.

I just wanted to remind you, Sir, that you still

have it, since you stole it  long, long, ago, and

I've been very lost since you snatched it out

You didn't even replace it with your own!!

You just took my heart, and trashed it!!

Trash--like old discarded paper. So

tell me if you can, why don't you

love me??  You took my poor

heart and I can't love one

single living soul ever

like I so love you.

Why don't you

love me??

BUT, Mine was used in a postive way...I printed it and used it to wrap a bracelet for my wife and bound it with a red ribbon and a single red rose. hee-hee. Scored major points.

NICE! I luv how u've made the poem into the shape of the heart. Now that's a form of poetry that I havent tried to do. hmmm giving me ideas! THANX!! Its really quite interesting as well... I think I've been there so many times when a boy would take my heart and I cant seem to look at any one else but him. So attached! But really, they dont give a damn about me. Aw well, Thank goodness valentines is over this year! Hopefully, next year will be better :)

A day after viewing your poem I am still amazed at the perfection of the image. You most certainly do have a style, besides a way with words. Thank your for this magnificent piece of concrete poetry. Linda
