Deceptions of The Heart
I’ve asked the Gods to free me from your presence in my mind.
Cried for quiet numbness to block away the time
I’ve wished the walls around me, wrought iron to the core.
Thrown my heart within them so I can’t feel you any more.
I seek you through the darkness of my desolated soul
Cross the threads lying broken within this endless void.
I hunt across my memory to turn you from my mind,
For desire lies shattered locked in boundless time.
I rage against you now and then to hide the hurt I feel.
Crush each spark of laughter shared by you and me.
Curl in the cold darkness that lies inside of me.
I’ve wished away forever, though I cannot count the times.
I beg the gods to free me and unchained, my spirit freed.
I’ve hunted down your memories and cast them in deception’s seas.
I‘ve wished the hope to silence while crushing every spark
And I dance upon the jagged edge of this shattered heart.
Yet I seek you in the darkness and hear your silent cries.
I feel your breath upon me as never begins to die.
I see your face behind my eyes, your touch upon my skin.
Sleepless as I memorize the contours of you once again.
I sought across the tracks of time searched both high and low
Driven by a needing of which I didn’t know.
And when it grows the darkest as I cast you from my heart
I wake anew each morning as it all begins again.
I’ve loved you through the ages across the universe divine,
and searched across the timeless plain to free you in this time.
Maybe in tomorrow in its never dawning grace,
I’ll open eyes upon you safe in your embrace.
