Does a treasure
captured lose worth?
If of no value, will it be thrown away?
No longer the treasure once sought?
Yet if valuable, will it not be guarded?
Secured yet displayed to flaunt the capture?
Or hidden and locked away to preserve?
Where is its worth if none may enjoy it?
And might not another try to steal it, too?
Perhaps the true owner wanting it home?
Can something stolen be returned with grace?
If kept, would then the treasure decay?
Rotting in the cell which preserves it?
Or fading from the seclusion of security?
Where is the worth in stealing your heart?
