to heart:

which could mean commit
to memory; or take seriously,
no laughing matter, for real.
or the common tendency
nowadays to noun the verb,
as in i heart you! or make
of subject-verb-adverb
a complete statement about
one’s inability to perform
even the simplest actions
for whatever has overpowered
one in the moment— as in
i can’t even! and if
the feeling continues
to escalate, then one
could beg of the other
to stahp it! but in all
these, it’s the same
heart which aches or
breaks or asks to be
picked up, carried,
taken to heart.
