Heart City by Cristi

He had a heart full
of goodbyes and a
Broken promise in
His soul, yet inside
He wished for something
Better, but what, he
Did not know
So he ran around
Gathering hearts and
Then letting them go
Because he didn’t
realize each one loved
him more than he could
ever know, so now he
lives in a city of hearts
that he’s taken on a
map with each name held
By a tack, not realizing
That after so many times
Of playing around,
They’ll stop loving
him back.
