Hiding My Heart

There you are, standing there.
Do I have a prayer?
You walk away, denying me,
But I am here.

There I am, wondering
If you might like me.
You seem nice.
You might be.
I hide my heart from you.

Pursuing slowly, but surely.
I wished you would.
It was a secret of mine.
I put on my armor to protect my heart.

I walk a little closer,
And you grab my heart.
My tender, beating heart.
I try to grab it.
No, it's gone.

You smile slyly as you crumble up my wasted heart.
You shove it at me maliciously.
"I had no need for this."

I hold my crumbled, beaten heart.
I cry.
I wish.
I ask, "Why?"
