His Heart

if he gave you his whole
would you hold it as though it was also
just as fragile as yours?

if he said to you his belonged
would you take that for weakness?
and deep down would you rather he withhold?
would you still desire the old baddish bloke?

if he not only promised, but showed
and stayed faithful
would that be his best hope of redress?

if he was vulnerable
would you think him less of a man?
and if he cried
would you be kind in deed and mind?
