Heart Disease

Captivated by the endearing lie

Ensnaring web of morbid obsession

Catatonic daze as each day flies by

The haunted eyes of silent confession

To each their own as they burn in desire

The heart is a muscle, it cannot see

One with the dying embers of the fire

Loneliness is the fate of you and me

The heart's lie begets a covetous joy

If not for more than a mere heartbeat's time

The strong, cold and weak all fall to this ploy

All the victims of the heart muscle's crime

And when the heart muscle begins to bleed

Convince yourself that love is all you need
