I made a joke, told him that I have an unintentional habit of stealing hearts
He said So, what? Do you just store them all somewhere
I said yeah, something like that
He asked, is mine there? Because I think I misplaced it
I said no, I did not have it and not because I actually don’t
but because I don’t want to be responsible for something that precious
I don’t want to hold something that tender with my reckless and clumsy hands
because what if I drop it ?
What if I bruise it ?
What if after my hands it does not beat as whole as it used to ?
I said no because even though I have his
If he were to look in his pile of hearts, he would not find mine
