    i will never have your heart
    i may have had it for a small moment in time
    but that moment has passed
    and now i only have your body

    content to have your body
    and make love to you until you have reached new levels
    i have broken down physical barriers
    explored new heights and passions
    but i still do not have your heart

    at the end of the day
    when we say our momentary good-byes
    share our triumphs and our dreams
    discuss our personal demons
    i think that i may have a piece of your heart
    but you still tell me that i do not

    why would you lie
    about something so important
    so it still stands that you do not love me
    and that i do not have your heart
    yet you have mine
    and i tell you this

    but this morning things changed
    i can no longer stand on the outside looking in
    as i look in the mirror and feel less than perfect
    because i do not have your heart
    and you feel more than perfect because you have mine
    and the hearts of others

    i can no longer let my heart
    bounce around in your pocket
    along with your other posessions
    placed on the end table with your watch and ring
    only to be picked up again when you feel the desire to play

    holding me after we make love
    is not enough to hold me to you
    so this morning i decided
    to pick up my heart from among your posessions
    and leave you with the hearts of others
    but my heart is too special
    to belong in a group

    one day...you may even notice that i am gone

    this was some powerful writing...redlady
    such imagery...the analogy that a heart
    was simply cast into a pile of inanimate
    objects and hearts of others....

    very real, very emotive...this was felt
    soooo touching
