Ticket

Do you not know
what it is
they say?
You should not go around
stealing hearts.
You were a thief in the night
when you came
for mine.
You whispered unto it
words it so desperately
wanted to hear,
but I suppose the joke
is on you,
for how can you steal
what was so willingly
given away?
Maybe we steal
because something
was taken from us,
and we do whatever we can
to fill the emptiness
within us.
If that is true,
then keep my heart.
All it ever did
was weigh me down.
