She has stolen my heart!

But not a thief;

I was alone in the pit of darkness;

Then she came and begged my golden heart, I kept quiet

But later I saw her with my heart;

There lay my heart in a pool of blood!

There lay a well-shaped organ of the young gentle boy!

She split my heart in my present; I cried

She laughed loudly and sharply,

She smeared some blood from my heart onto her face.

She moved;

And I followed her; for she took my heart;

Our journey was not an ordinary one;

We moved uphill-downhill, highlands-lowlands, highways-paths;

And city town-slums,

Once more and the last step was to her well-charmed house.

On turning in the door,

We were welcomed by the freshen air of her house;

I was happy; forgetting to ask my stolen heart;

I went not to court, she called and I went.

I got great reward for my stolen heart!

And for sure I was not bribed.

    Excellent! ” I wasn’t bribed”; I was loved. Beny, you forced me to fill in the blank and that’s the recipe of the great writing: You give readers 2+2 and them find the answer (4).
