I'll Place This Heart Here

It was only a distant dream.

By Sharita CormierPublished 5 years ago 1 min read

Once in my head distant dreams were present

You hand found mine in the distance

Your hand on my chest insured me securely

Did you maybe appear present and not a parent

Tell me do you feel what I feel

Can you hear what I hear

Come closer so I can hear if your heart's still beating

Mine is aching and bleeding

Journeys vanish before the beginning

The devil's snare must be bound

She wants to take you

Her heart is cold but she craves your lust

Should you take her before I shall be glorified in the light

I'll wait still

And still will I wait

My heart with yours is one

And oddly we haven't even begun

Grief I must take on and claw through the briars I pulled you from

They are engulfing me

Hold on don't go

Oh wait you were never mine

Let me release you back unto the wilderness

I can't overcome this death inside for losing you

I'm lost while lost without your touch

My insides have met a complex world

Know that perpetually I mourn

Is this intense an incessant notion of nothingness again

I know the value of mine own true self

I'll place this heart her upon a shelf

Bye my prince I'll wait here still©
