"I took the road less traveled, and that has made all the difference"~Robert Frost

My heart is a beating soul.
Every day I need it to live.
I wait for the day that someone will steal it.
Though I’m kind of hesitant about it.
What if they break it?
Shatter it into a million pieces?
It’s not as easy thing to mend.
It could take me months, years, the rest of my life.
They could also hold it gently.
Take in consideration,
That if they make one wrong move,
It could fall and lay broken.
Broken on the floor forever.
They could care for it.
Or not.

Hearts are fine like china. They can be so delicate... I like the ending to this and the beginning is my favorite part.

I like the ending to it. How you question whether people will really care about you or not. I felt the emotion and relate to it.
