Stony Hearts

I used to search for heart-shaped rocks

in the hope that offering them

would soften yours

I collected dozens

but it didn’t work

a pile of stony hearts in the bathroom

served only as hard reminder

that you couldn’t love me in the way

I wanted to be loved

still I stumbled across them

every beach trip a mission

an attempt

to give stony heart

to soften yours
