A Heart Piece Exchange Program

These two men vastly different
Are taking up space inside of me
I’ve previously given them my heart
And they’ve held onto the pieces
Each one treating them differently in their own way
My heart knows they have pieces that belong to it
It keeps track of every piece
- given, stolen, lost, misplaced, returned,
borrowed, replaced, reused, abused,
forgotten, neglected, cherished, nourished,
cared for, loved -
Hopefully if I’ve given, you’ve given back
A heart piece exchange program
I have pieces from these two men still
Their sizes might be different,
But right now that’s irrelevant-
Their pieces are inside me
Reminding me
I am carrying them around,
I am their caretaker
And I treat them well
My heart is accepting
They’ve grown attached
Becoming a sort of permanent placement inside of me
And each day the seal becomes tighter, the stiches- stronger,
The bond- real
Their heart pieces becoming my heart pieces
Now each beat of my heart beats a little piece of each of them
These two men-
So vastly different-
Each a piece of me
And I, a part of them
