heavy conscious tin box

I’ll send you my heart in a box 

A little tin one with some old logo on the front so no one will know.

It will be our secret. I will send you my entire heart first and then you will send yours in return.

Do you promise? It took a lot out of me to gather up the reminiscents of this muscle that used to control me. 

I was really tied up. Making every decision based on a pulse can get you into trouble. 

Is yours still intact? You can gorilla glue or use new memories to mend what’s left on the floor.

Please remember to return the favor. This tin box contains all I had left and I guess it’s yours now. Will I be left on your shelf? Hidden in your underwear drawer?

Let me be the lover you wanted me to be.
