My heart came down an assembly line. Pounded, burned and forged like steel, buffed and shined by the hands of several lovers through the years.
Although the first dropped it by accident, another did her best to test its tensility like a child would that of an old unwanted toy. Yet another was bent on breaking it beyond recognition…which seemed to take me an eternity to return it to the manufacturer’s specifications.
Actually, none of them ever asked for a design…each just took it and ran. However, the only one of them that really matters never gave it back.
