Collecting Broken HeartsMature

This is inspired by four gifts I've been given in my time by some beautiful boys who I made it out like meant nothing to me... :| (in all honesty.. one of them never did.. because I'm a b*tch like that and because I got FORCED into dating him... His present is, however, one of the two most beautiful and is home-made - out of clay - which just adds to the beauty.. If he knew I still had it he would probably die of embarrassment or something....)

Collecting broken hearts
For days when I feel
Lonely

Collecting up your pain
For when I think I am
Weak

Collecting all your gifts
For times when I feel
Unloved

Collecting up your name(s)
For times when I lose
Myself

Collecting up your lust
For days when I think I'm
Ugly

Collecting up your tears
For when you make me think I cause
No hurt

Collecting up your trust
For when I realise I want to have
Faith

Collecting broken hearts
For the time when I eventually
Work out how to
Love

The End
