The Art of Love

I Gave You My Heart

I gave you my heart, to hold and cherish forever. I gave you the sleeve which held it so dear to me. I gave you my soul because I thought you loved it more than I ever could. I gave you my mind as a tether to keep me sane. I gave you the fingers you used to cradle in your arms. I gave you the flowers that used to hold me in the dark. I gave you the wind in every breath because I thought it would disappear every time you did. I gave you the sun, the moon, the Earth and everything that was so real to me in between, because I had always thought that you were the realest thing… In my life. I gave it to you, because you asked it of me, but once something is gone away, it really does not come back.
