I am not a mass of muscle and flesh to be experimented on, I am a heart. You want me or you don’t. You get me or you won’t. Make your choice and hold fast, there’ll be no going back. Once you’ve made up your mind, you’ll have made up mine as well. It’s all or nothing, I won’t be parsed out. This isn’t the pick-and-pull, it’s the as-is sale of less than whole hearts. You get the vulnerable, compassionate, broken, and battered bits. Choose me. Take me. Open up and let me in. You won’t be my project and I won’t be yours, we’ll just stand side-by-side as make our own repairs.
