Pieces Of My Heart

Every one
That I adore
Keeps a piece of my heart
Sometimes a bit more

And the ones that take
So much more
Leave me
Empty
Broken
Barren
Unsure

If I’ll ever want to
Give away
My heart
If I ever want love
To again
Start

Despite all odds
Letting love creep in
Reviving this broken down
Vessel
Letting love seep in

To these cracks
Inside my soul
Nestling Itself
So quietly
So slow

Stealthily filling
These tiny holes
These nooks
Crannies
Alleyways
Filled with fear
Flushing out the worries
With fresh new
Tears

Cleansed and ready
Virgin veins
Ready to have love
Pumped in
Again

I tried resisting
Staying stoic
And brave
Knowing all too well
I couldn’t
Save

Myself
This time
From love
From you
Looking in your eyes
That night
I just knew

The war was over
The conflict done
The battle inside
For my heart
Had been won

By you
Sweet you
Keep my heart safe
And whatever you do
Don’t let it
Break
