One-hundred and Thirty-eight: now i have two hearts

now i have two hearts.
sometimes i think
that the first one
was never broken
and
sometimes i think
that the first one
breaks all the time
in lots of little ways

now i have two hearts.
it’s like having a reserve.
one on the left
one on the right
one on the inside
one on the outside
one is frayed with rejection
one is sore with strength

now i have two hearts.
that means i can love more
i have enough for everyone
maybe even me
