Green Heart

my hearts “going green”
it’s not like I can toss it out
and buy a new one at wal-mart
I have to use the one I have
and make it last
until blood no longer pumps
through the veins
it’s hard some days
thinking of ways to jump start it
so that it doesn’t wither black and die
loving you was like a coronary
and almost killed me
I’ve decided what works for Earth
should work for my heart
reduce the amount I give away
recycle the feelings and memories daily
so that they don’t grow stale
and reuse what is left
for someone else
that will know how to treat me right
and love me in return.
