Short Stories, Poems and Life

She Kept My Heart

She gave me back my picture

She gave me back my ring

She gave me back my freedom

And almost everything

She slammed the door in my face

And told me not to call

She gave me back my every wish

But she kept the best of all

She kept what I had locked inside

Deep within my chest

And now a vacant spot

I hide beneath my suit and vest

She gave me back my every dream

The day we had to part

But she kept the best of all

My one and only heart
