The Replacement
By diana.pretty.sweet.

 


The Replacement

Gather up the bits and pieces of your wounded heart;
stitch them together with hopeful threads of happiness
while removing the bent, sharp staples that remain.

Take your heart out and put it on the table.
show the priceless feeling:
seeping through its intertwined, pumping veins.
the ones from your pained, sorrowful past
from when it almost stopped beating...
willing to give up at the sharp razor of your command
almost knowing what to expect...but never happened.

Love until its fragile shape overflows;
where the cracks once were and hopeful threads took their place.
And it leaves you to gather up the bits,
from the cold hard floor in which they lay-

For you to scavenge the remains
of that beating thing
that has been hurt too many times
by the sweet nothings...meaningless

Going back to where you started
with the pieces in your hand
willing to begin all over
only to find out there is no more thread
and staples take its place
