What Did You Do With Your Heart?


That was you, holding my heart in your palm
like a flower.

Last night, I found myself in a dream, I had many times before,
a dream that I deemed to be real, in the 29'th day of an april.

Counting the stars on your cheeks,
and the kisses on my lips,
the old kisses that you gave me, fortuitously,
in the empty elevator
or on the black stairs,
when the world was holding itself, far from our childish hearts.

Night was too short in your room, and the day too,
and my heart, never would have gotten bored of you,
like others did.

I'm so ashamed of my heart.
She made you leave, after their dreams,
she...

..she was a fool,
for she did not know how to love you
the way you wanted to be loved.

Straying nude in their palms, your kisses, on their lips,
while alone I love you,
more than the sum of them all,
losing you in their beds,
my dreams become dust.

I cannot follow your heart there,
but I'm gonna be here, even tomorrow
writing poems for you
like a lover, because
I've lost my heart in your arms
and I want it back.
Give it back!
