Owe

Your monetary support of Writeropolis Industries is much appreciated. Anything you pop into my tip jar goes straight back into the growth of the network. If you do, you may be name-dropped in an episode of Raconteuse Radio!

give me your heart, for i am owed

i demand of you the thing that i deserve the most
i promise you that i will keep it close
tenderly, gently, softly

no one else will protect you as i can, 
from the peaks and valleys 
of this lovely journey 
that i'm prepared to join

but you are beholden to me
so long as you let me
hold you closer than you ever have before

the beating of the heart
that's in your chest
will be in my hands

warm and unfleeting 
pulsing and strong 
unyielding 

you've had my heart
now i want yours
give it to me.
