Something of Yours / Something of Mine Written By: Jonathan Bowden
This is a poem of specific design. I stole something of yours, It isn’t mine. But you reciprocated in kind, When you took something that was mine. I gave it gladly, because I took yours. But you did not have to take mine, Cause it was already yours. Have you figured it out yet? You still don’t know, I bet. Well here’s another clue. It begins with me and you. The things we have taken Are one and the same, But yet different, nothing inane. Before this poem is done, You better figure out its name. I’ll do my best to explain all the rest. Here’s an easy clue: It beats in our chest.
I stole your heart, and now I pay the fine, By giving you what is mine. I’ll cradle your heart with all my whiles, But be careful, mine’s fragile.
