You stole my heart, and I didn’t even realize it was missing until I saw you with her.
Then suddenly that heart was being shot straight through, more than pieces two.
Is there anyone who,
Can put it back together?
In a perfect world, you would have never got near it.
In a perfect world, you couldn’t just sear it
with your words and your being and your look and me seeing
how much I want to be with you and be like you, and be made new
by growing into love with you.
You stole my heart, I glanced back and suddenly it was gone
like the lyrics of a song,
something forgotten, on the tip of the tongue, that just won’t come.
You stole my heart, and I wish you wouldn’t pawn it, with all the love that’s on it,
I wish you’d keep it for yourself, to guard and keep in health,
to hold and love and cherish, but to you I think it’s garish.
Too much beat and shine, “I don’t want this to be mine”,
you’ll think upon the time, when the chance comes to let it go.
Let it go, let me go, or break the pieces that are left, from your unexpected theft, and me seeing you with her.
I hope you guard her heart.
