    Steups- A steups, according to Lise Winer's wonderful Dictionary of the English/Creole of T&T, is "the sound made by sucking air and saliva through the teeth, indicating annoyance or derision." It's said to be of West African origin but peculiar to Trinidadians and Tobagonians

    Macco- Gossip; peep at; look at something that is supposed to be private. Someone that is overly curious about other people’s affairs.

    The memories

    You didn't realize it right away. It was really thanks to your research. If you hadn't considered giving your heart to yourself than the thought would not have crossed your mind.
    That a year ago your name was not Jane. It was something else. But you couldn't remember it.
    You just knew one day you were sitting with your therapist and she suggested it was time for you to get a companion. You had agreed without thinking. You had told yourself you were already at that age and it was excepted. But there was a nagging feeling in the back of your mind that you did this before. But you couldn't remember. In fact all you could remember was visiting your therapist.
    Now you looked at John. He was speechless.
    -Well can you?
    -Those details are unimportant. All that matters is_
    -You don't remember do you John. There is a feeling that you had relationships before but when you try to remember it nothing comes to mind. Its blank.
    -None of that matters. Just please change your mind Jane. I don't want to go into isolation.
    He genuinely looked scared.
    -John they aren't going to put you in isolation. They will just make you forget just like they did before. They will do it to me soon once the matchmaker picks up on it. John that's why I am making my choice while I have the free will to do it. You should to.

    I said no

    -Why are you here John?
    He looked at you in disbelief.
    -Do you know how you embarrassed me?!
    You were ready to slam the door. This was your appartment. He had no right too_
    -You could have just submitted the plead for reassignment. To get a new heart to cling to.
    That was it!
    -I did plead.
    Your voice was raising.
    -I pleaded after the first three months and you rejected it. Said we were going through a rough patch. That we would work through it in therapy.
    He held his tongue now.
    -But now I know why. The system failed you to. It always paired you with partners who weren't compatible. You couldn't hold on to their hearts and you were going to get isolated if this match didn't work out.
    -If you knew all that then why did you end it! Why didn't you just give me your heart.
    -Because it's not right. This is not right. John do you even remember who you were before you met me?
    He couldn't answer you.

    Jane and John

    You met him last year. You were in a hopelessly corner and your heart therapist said that you needed a companion. She found you one.
    His name was John.
    Your name was Jane.
    You coincidentally had the same surname.
    You gave each other your hearts.
    As excepted by society norms.
    And you lived to regret it.

    Heart therapy

    -Is it illegal?
    -Why are you asking that?
    -Is it illegal to give your heart to yourself?
    -I don't think I should answer that.
    -So it isn't. I thought so.
    -I would advise you against this. You will be ridiculed, judged and rejected. Its goes against societal norms.
    -I am not breaking the law. I am just choosing the answer no one knew they could take.
    -You are going down a difficult road.
    -I have been walking one for the pass five years. I think I can handle this.

    Is that legal?

    -Did you really do it?
    -What?
    -Give your heart to yourself?
    -Yes.
    -Is that legal?
    -Yes. The law just says to give your heart to someone. It never said you couldn't give it to yourself.

    A journey to self love

    Every year you are required to give your heart to someone. This year after months of mental abuse you decided to give it to yourself.

    Can you tell me what's its like to walk outside without having to constantly look over your shoulders?

    Don't let another person's anger in their failures bring you down. You are worth more than a dart board for their fits of rage.
