My heart longs to love you, My heart longs to care
Wrapped in steel wire, a box containing my love
beats against walls of flesh surrounded by crimson flow
Longing to break free and show the very beat that tells a story of love lost and gained
One fatal prick somehow doesn’t end the game
a drop for the lies you tell, a drop for the stories you weave to win a heart
that continues to swell. Somehow miraculously
the beats continue as a new story is told, the heart remains full….
someone new shows they deserve me more than you.
Imprinted but not tattooed, the pages turn to
begin anew, a story of velvet and steel my heart
still beats, still longs, still cares.
