Just a lil’ piece …

August 4, 2009

I could give you all you ever wanted,

I could give you all my heart.

Only if it was left in me,

Only if it wasn’t torn apart.

I could be the one for you,

I could love you like you love me.

Only if my soul was intact,

Only if it wasn’t bruised badly.

I could look forward to a life with you,

I could picture you and me.

Only if I wasn’t hopeful,

Only if I didn’t want it to come back to me.

Now all I can ask you,

Is if you’d agree,

If you could make do,

With just a lil’ piece of my heart…

    the start reminded me of a Sheryl Crow song: http://www.lyrics007.com/Sheryl%20Crow%20Lyrics/The%20First%20Cut%20Is%20The%20Deepest%20Lyrics.html

    nice one.

    with all love and care
    your darling will ease the pain

    We all want everything…and every bit of it… I wonder how many will agree to “make do with jus a lil’ ”

    Nicely written and well versed..

    The most talked about human organ in poems should be the heart, na ? :D

    • August 4, 2009 10:43 pm

      Oh Btw, I am bad at analysing poems. It should be good :D :D

    • August 4, 2009 10:45 pm

      You want me to write about other organs? What organs? Are you a dirty mind?
      *lemme know so I can go ahead and tch tch you* :P

      • August 4, 2009 10:51 pm

        Oh no, what I meant was that, normally poets write either about the eyes or the heart and I guess its heart that always lead.

        How I wish there are poems on teeth, or tonsils, or fingers, or you know, you know, something different ? :D :D :D

          I remember one such poem:

          Chubby cheeks,
          dimple chin,
          rosy lips,
          teeth within,
          Curly hair,
          very fair,
          eyes are blue,
          lovely too

          (OMG how racist is that poem!!!!)

    And what you think could be an answer of the little piece of heart?

    • August 5, 2009 9:44 am

      Well, sometimes a little piece can be enough too. Even if its not, thats all you could give.

  11. August 5, 2009 5:39 am

    Beautiful! That little piece of heart is like Mount Everest x 10, knowing you.

    One more thing, the soul cannot be tarnished. It is a manifestation of God in man. And since you are a blessed soul, this is just not possible.

    Wow, it would be so painful to hear these words… I mean,

    I could be the one for you,

    I could love you like you love me.

    To think that after all the love that you give, all you get is a lil piece…

    gee neha

    lil piece will be whole again,
    happiness will soon replace pain,
    all we learn and endure within,
    is what makes us who we become at the end,
    and just when u think u’re used to a lil piece of heart,
    u get gifted a whole one, with love that is limitless…

    and until that time, when u feel t he joy, u know u got friends to hold the fort…

    maybe cannot ease ur pain…
    but we’ll be here to make sure u r never alone in this!

    {{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{super tight hugs}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}

    sorry am late to see this, was drowned in work
    :(

    love u neha!
