Heart's blood,
In a flood,
Of brokenness,

See it fly,
See it dry,
Hardened and lifeless,

Watch it walk,
Watch it talk,
Watch it die slowly,

Crumpled and worn,
Beaten and torn,
It tries to limp home,

But its legs shatter,
It doesn't matter,
To anyone but you,

It falls in tatters,
Its soul splatters,
Across the cold, hard floor,

Like an egg it breaks,
And a mess makes,
Of all that was in it,

A thousand promises,
A thousand prayers,
A thousand hopes,
A thousand cares,

Lost to the world,
Lost and curled,
Up in a hole of woe,

Forever lost,
Dearly cost,
Paid in heart and soul,

Heart's blood,
See it fly,
In a flood,
See it dry,
Of brokenness,
Hardened and lifeless,

And as it goes,
So does,
Part,
Of,

You.
