Don't presume that when you left,
You took half my heart with you;
don't be so arrogant to think that
the only other thing I loved was you.
Long before you came along,
I loved family and friends and
reading with midnight snack and
listening to songs that you mocked at.
I still do.
But just because you didn't wrench out
half my heart
Doesn't mean you left it
A gem that's chipped has lost value;
a puzzle missing even
is still incomplete.
