i gave my heart to a crocodile
but
he used it as a toothpick
so
i took it back
and

gave it to Charlie Chaplin
but
he kept playing the dictator
so
i took it back
and

gave it to Houdini
but
he'd make it disappear every morn
so
i took it back
and

gave it to the Beatles
but
they threw it to their lunatic fans
so
i took it back
and

gave it to my chest
but
it was dark and bloody in there
so
i took it back
and

gave it to You,
my Unloneliness,
to stuff it next to yours -
i heard from your veins
there's room enough for Two
in your rib cage.

OK.. This is actually a pretty good poem :-) Love it! Maybe, just maybe, instead of "gave it to my chest", add another character! Someone the writer gives her heart to but regrets it because it's dark and bloody (too many hearts?).

I'm glad you are happy now. When I got to your work about two years ago (maybe more ?), you seemed really confused and depressed sometimes (althought that just might be my feeling because I felt that way these days). I'm glad you at least seem to feel better.
Your poem is really touching.
