I let you too close to me,
close enough for you to reach your hands into my chest
between my ribs
below my quivering lips
I shook the fear away and let you in anyway

I let each of your ten fingers stretch around my heart,
I allowed you to feel the way my heart throbbed for you
the way it ached for you

I didn't think you would dig your nails straight in
and rip it out of my chest.
