two hearts

Two hearts…

There are two hearts

the one a lump of blood and muscles
a disgusting necessity

the other is born each time we meet
and come to love each other
as friends, as lovers, as family
it grows outside the body
it is fragile
it can be broken
and if we are lucky, it can be mended

I will give my heart a thousand times
every time its born…
I believe in hope….
