My Heart

Posted by Pye in Poetry | 11:40pm

I gave my heart to you to keep
In your safekeeping did I trust
Then buried it in tears so deep
That the poor organ began to rust

You tended it all day and night
You tried to make it clean and clear
You rubbed it till it was so bright
Hale and hearty it did appear

Just when you thought it was alive
The bloody organ died on you
You tried your best, it didn't revive
Was nothing else that you could do

Your life, my heart - one entity
You've lost a part of you with me.
