Simple Hearts

Blood red,
Beating through the soul

Smiling, swaying,
Do no more

No lightning,
Nothing at all

Only shivers,
Time must fall

A window,
Chasing the trees

Driven to fall,
On your knees

Lie, cheat and steal,
All at once

The world,
It always confronts

Never to be shed,
Ice tears

Enveloping,
Changing years

Now mangled,
Now nourished,
Our simple hearts
