I give you my heart

I give you my heart

in its entirety,

soul included, naked,


honest, sincere

It is surely vulnerable



Over the years, i’ve hurt and learnt

my heart, with layers upon layers of dark

carbon protecting it, forming a hard shell

of formidable hardness



We forget that carbon,

in its high density form, is also brittle

I give you my heart, from my hands to yours

It might fall and break into a thousand pieces

Much of it might never be retrieved again

And I will forever lose parts of my heart

There is indeed such a possibility


But still

I want to give you my heart

For this is the last great gamble of my life
