Hearts

First

Both of our hearts shattered

Yours in a firework, mine in a void

As we bent to gather your pieces

I could feel mine crumbling

 

Then

I tried to bind your heart together

With time, the beginning of time,

I know it needs more to grow

And I let you walk away.

 

Then

While you walked away,

as I bent to gather my pieces,

I pretended only one heart had been shattered

 

One day

Someone will try to bind my heart together

With time, the beginning of time,

I know it will stay until then

And you needed to walk away.
