Christmas Eve

By
I cut out my heart,
And put in a box for you.
I wrapped it in paper,
And tied it with a bow.
I put it in the mail,
And closed my eyes,
As the truck drove away.
Drove away with my heart,
A Christmas gift for you.
Five days later, Six days later,
I got a package back.
Haphazardly thrown together,
Tied with butcher paper,
And string,
I got my heart back.
But, it wasn't the same.
Maimed,
Torn,
Broken.
I got my heart back.
Send away on Christmas,
Given back on New Years,
I cut out my heart,
For you.
Guess you didn't want it.
