My Paper heart

If my heart were made of paper
Would you tear it?
Would you hear it?
Would you fear it?
Or just strain it?

Would you make it cry?
Would you turn it dry?
If I asked you why,
Would you care to try?

Would you decorate my paper heart?
Or just shatter it like you did from the start?
Would you pierce it with a plastic dart?
Would you bake it a chocolate tart?
Or drive it in a cart?
Would you play a part?
Or blow it apart?

Please don’t take my paper heart
It’s all I have left.
