A Piece of my Heart

You can’t
have a piece
of my heart

But a piece of my soul
You’ve already claimed

The shredding and
The pain

Of scattering ache
Across another page

I’m broken

Like another old toy
Your predecessors
Already exchanged

I’m flesh and alive
Despite the hardening
Of my mind
To love once again

You’ll have to break through
Because a piece of my heart
I’ll not easily part
