Swept

Sweep softly into your arms
And cry until my well dries up
Only the softness of
Your loving touch
Can comfort me
If I drowned
In a flood of tears
Would it be suicide
Or would you be the murderer?
I empty my shattered heart
You can't melt it back together
So I pick up the jagged pieces
And walk away
With all the dignity I can muster
Your tough love rejects me
Turns me away
I want to run to you
But knowing I healed myself
Will bring all the more satisfaction
Goodbye, I'll fair well
Find guideposts all my own
I don't need you
So cruel to let me go vulnerably
Though your love has swept me up,
It has abandoned me in its fickleness
