Heart in Pieces

You came to me,

tearful,

like a child would,

their favorite toy

in pieces,

holding out your hands,

showing me

your broken heart.

 

I took the puzzled parts,

exchanged them for another,

mended,

its scars apparent

and thick.

 

And when you walked away

whole, and able to love again,

you never realized

that I had merely traded

your fractured heart in pieces

for the one

that was once

my  own.
