His jar of hearts

Or in his case, it was a jar of keys. Same thing I guess, because I can only imagine how many women gave him their heart along with their key. Artifacts, I called them. The saddest thing is that he really didn’t clue in that it wouldn’t always be that easy to keep collecting either. He claims to be happy, but I can see right through him as usual and he’s got a bewildered and mildly desperate look in his eyes now. I used to hope that my love would be enough to break the pattern, but now I know that with some people, nothing is ever going to be enough. They’re addicted to looking for something better right around the corner and they’ve always got one foot out the door. Just like I learned to live half a life when I was with him, I’ve finally learned to live my whole life without him. “Who do you think you are, running ‘round leaving scars?”

That’s why I’m not interested in dating anymore. I would never want to cause pain to anyone, and until I feel ready to give it another shot, I’ll stay single.

You have known about his jar of keys and were the one who thought you could change the bad boy.

This is quite interesting. Is this from your heart, or a book or poem? I'd like to read it is

I can’t take credit for the inspiration because Christina Perri wrote “Jar of Hearts”. I discovered the jar of keys about 6 years before she wrote the song, and when I heard it, it resonated with me because it was clear she was writing about the same type of person.
