Heart

-

Without a doubt

The time has come to embrace

The unbearable truth

In all of its entirety

-

Right now, drowning in a maelstrom of mistakes

I can't seem to reach out for your hand

-

If only I hadn't fallen

Tripping over a single smile

Somehow the thoughts had escaped me

The pieces of a shatter dream gone

-

Lost in lonely abandonment, the tides flow on

So much for the horizon that lies beyond

The fading dusk aches with forsaken hope

This time around, I had to fight to reach shore

-

Without a doubt

I had to find the strength

The courage to stand back up again

Now, continue to walk the path before me

-

Holding out arms to capture

Both love and pain

Embraced in all of its entirety

Within the deepest grasp of my heart
