My Heart

When I tell you that you stole my heart
Here is what I mean…

I’m not saying that my heart skipped a beat
when i first saw you
Like the poets promised
I’m not saying that you cross my mind at times
I’m saying you live in it
*And i live off you*
I’m not saying that you are a mere temporary effect
I’m saying the butterflies in my stomach overstayed their welcome

I’m not saying that my heart skipped a beat
I’m saying that I haven’t felt it beat ever since
I’m saying my lifeline depends wholly on your existence
And as they all say
I’m saying that i can’t live without you
and that scares me the most because I actually think I mean it

You are the life in my poems
So if you leave I won’t be able to continue writing these similes
I’m saying if you decide to head out
Then so will my arteries…
