she stood by the corner of a busy street
wary as the people passed by
the people in such a hurry, all in such a trance
none breathing so much of a sigh


they ambled by as she reached in her pocket
and as if she were attempting a dare,
she placed her heart in the palm of her hand
though the passersby merely stared

and stare they did, all of the people,

who continued to walk on by,

they stared incredulously at the palm of her hand

as if her heart were a puissant lie

but thenone soul among the crowd
reached out and took hold of her heart
but as careful as he was as he cradled it in hands,
he inadvertently broke it apart

his world rained guilt as he returned her possession,
though he merely frowned and turned his back
leaving her standing holding the bits and pieces
of a heart, never really intact
