A New Heart


I think I want to return my heart for a new one.
I want a heart that has not yet been opened and tampered with.
I know that with experience come pain.
Each time I take it in for repair it comes back missing a piece.
Eventually the experiences will add up.
Eventually my heart will continue to shrink one piece at a time.
How do you love fully when your heart has so many holes?
What happens when the holes are too big?
The holes are so big that the love just falls out of the bottom.
The love shatters as it hits the ground.
There is only so much that faith can do.
There is only so much time until your heart shrinks to nothing.
I want to share my whole heart and not just the jagged pieces.
I know I want to return my heart for a new one.
