I gave a man my heart

I gave my heart to a man
And for a while, he cherished what he had in his hands
He held it softly and gently
Careful not to break it
Staring wonder at how it beat so beautifully
I gave my heart to a man
And he kept it tucked in the pocket of his pants
Taking it with him everywhere
So we could always be together
I gave my heart to a man
And watched as he began to care less
Peeking under my eyes
As he left my heart laying around
I gave my heart to a man
I watched as he held it in his hands
Staring in amazement as he regarded it
Turning it over, studying it
Stroking it before suddenly throwing it
I looked down, ashamed for what I’d done
Giving my heart once again to the wrong one
