My Heart


There once was a girl
I gave her my heart
And she gladly accepted it

She kept it close to her
Kept it nice and warm
Made it feel loved

She started to play with it
Poked at it
Tested its limits

Until one day she grabbed my heart
And started to squeeze really hard
Until she threw it onto the ground

She stepped on it
Spat on it
And still refused to give it back

Until one day she did
And just when I thought it was all over
She stabbed me right in the back

However I didn't feel anything after that
Because the pain I was feeling in my heart
It was far greater than anything imaginable

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
