No Small Price

I hear you before

I see you.

Startling, yet comforting,

you shine luminescent

like the barely functioning headlights

of your beaten up car,

exhausted from incessant use.

My heart felt like this, too,

Before.

The valves were tattered around

the coils from prior abuse.

Like a mechanic,

you revived all my compromised parts.

These services were delivered

free of charge.

Thinking nothing of it until

Later,

I pressed my clammy palms

upon my restless heart.

Good as new only

Now

it belongs to you.
