I don’t want your heart.

I don’t want your heart
I already have my own
and you wouldn’t be able to survive
without your heart beating within your chest
I’d never feel any rest
if your eyes no longer opened
and your hands no longer caressed
every part of me.

Please keep it for yourself
buried within the chest cavity
in which it belongs
love isn’t taking it whole
more than a heart is able to give
rather love is receiving
and reciporcating
all awhile remembering each parts separate
as much as they are a unit.

We’re not one entity
we’re two separate bodies
conjoining for mere moments of time
and parting enough
to do as we must
and joining within the moments
we can’t breath alone
and separating when we need our own air
never compromising our own values
because love doesn’t mean
quitting upon yourself
it means having an extension of help
in the moments that are the hardest.

Thanks for reading.
